Josep Casas Victòria Soler Con la colaboración de Lídia Colominas, María Saña y Joan S. Mestres


A report on extensive excavations at the rural complex of Saus (near Girona, eastern Spain), the findings of which attest to a scattered occupation and characterized by a wide range of materials found in a sequence of pits dating from the Early and High Iberian periods. Among the finds were the bases of four oil presses related to the polis of Emporion 10 km away. The information collected allows the tracing of the evolution of the material culture of the region and the highlighting of a practically unknown dimension of rural life from the 6th to 3rd centuries BC.
