  • El ídolo de «El Lomo» (Cogolludo, Guadalajara)

    This paper discusses a carved stone found in El Lomo, a prehistoric settlement near Cogolludo (province of Guadalajara) in central Spain. The natural shape, of the stalagmitic rock from which the idol of Cogolludo was made resembled some prehistoric pebbles in which a man-made mark along the middle suggests they were connected with some kind of fertility rite; in the case of the idol from El Lomo, this intention was reinforced by decorating the top of the stone with a perpendicular carvin...

    Serving wine. Some comments on the adoption of the oinochoe in the lower Ebro basin (7th and 6th centuries BC)

    Traditionally, in the northeastern peninsula, the introduction of the first indicators of Mediterranean influence in relation to the consumption of wine, is dated to the second half of the sixth century BC (ionian cups, Attic kylix, Attic black-figure). Nevertheless, in the lower Ebro valley, the exceptional frequency of Phoenician trade shows clear evolution of the ceramic repertoire during the sixth and seventh centuries BC, a fact that makes it possible to evaluate the occurrence of certai...

    Crossing the line? The Spanish-Portuguese frontier seen through publications on pre- and protohistory

    Using a sample of specialist publications from the Iberian Peninsula, we define the research patterns of Spanish and Portuguese archaeologists and the communication they maintain among themselves and with colleagues from other countries. Combining analyses of sources and citations, we evaluate how and where research is carried out. Our results help define bibliometric indicators responsive to the specific needs of Archaeology. We note the absence of important differences between Iberian archa...

    Escultura zoomorfa de Monterrubio de la serena (Badajoz). Una aproximación a su interpretación socio-cultural y simbólica

    We present a study of a new stone sculpture of a ram, found in Monterrubio de la Serena (Badajoz). If from a formal point of view it must be related to Andalusian Iberian sculpture, its symbolic evaluation lead us to compare it with other plastic representations found in several cultural contexts. These are frequently associated with burial and religious rites, where they can symbolize the passage from death to Iife, or with some scenes of sacrifices offered to the deity. Such rites came from...

    The examination of ancient DNA: guidelines on precautions, controls, and sample processing

    The young discipline of palaeogenetics has developed into a successful and expectant field of archaeobiological research within the last decade. Palaeogenetic investigation (e.g. PCR, DNA sequencing) of ancient specimens is, however, susceptible to falsification by the presence of contamination from more recent times. Contamination which can lead to amplification of non-authentic sequences is known to stem from several sources: (i) human biomolecules derived from the persons performing the ge...
