Description

Esta publicación incluye todos los datos recientes recuperados en “El castro” (Pendia) durante las campañas arqueológicas desarrolladas entre 2003 y 2013. Por esta razón, el libro reúne un amplio abanico de temas que incluyen:- El estudio de las arquitecturas perecederas.- Otros estudios acerca de las arquitecturas del castro: por ejemplo la defensiva o la del recinto norte.- El desarrollo urbano del poblado, entre la Edad del Hierro y la época romana.- Las actividades textiles en Pendia. En este capítulo los estudios de género y la arqueología de las households tienen un papel crucial. El estudio está basado en el análisis espacial de las pesas de telar recuperadas en las excavaciones.- Por último es la primera revisión de la información arqueológica proporcionada por el Dr. Antonio García y Bellido sobre el sitio tras la excavación de 1941.

Reviews:‘This work is highly original since it provides the first overview on the castro of Pendia (Asturias) and offers valuable contributions to the wider understanding of hillforts in northern Spain and beyond.’Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz, University of Edinburgh

‘This book includes a large amount of original data which was previously unpublished or disperse, including the results of years of excavations in which the author played a fundamental role.’Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz, University of Edinburgh

‘This detailed study of Pendia offers new insights into the architecture and daily life of one of the best-researched hillforts of northern Iberia. ... The information contained in the book is potentially attractive to all scholars working on Iron Age Europe.’Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz, University of Edinburgh

‘This work is entirely original as it is based on extensive excavations at Pendia. These are placed within the wider context of western Asturian castros, again entirely new. … [The data are] of great value to the subject area as few western Asturian castros have seen any excavation.’Prof. Gary Lock, Kellogg College, University of Oxford
