Description

Este libro analiza los resultados de las excavaciones en el yacimiento de Mas Gusó, cercano a la antigua colonia focea de Emporion, centrándose en el periodo más antiguo, el cual abarca desde las primeras y pequeñas ocupaciones pertenecientes al Neolítico Final y bronce Inicial, para continuar con el principal y más importante asentamiento agrícola de la primera Edad del Hierro, que, a su vez, dará paso al establecimiento ibérico surgido como consecuencia de la fundación de Emporion. Se analizan con detalle los diferentes ámbitos y estructuras de cada época, así como los distintos restos de la cultura material del yacimiento: cerámica local y de importación, otros instrumentos de la vida cotidiana, así como los restos de fauna más significativos.Abandonado el hábitat ibérico, décadas más tarde surgirá un nuevo complejo de época romana, de carácter público u oficial (una statio), edificado a finales del siglo II aC, el cual será objeto de un próximo estudio monográfico. The present book analyses the results of the excavation of the settlement of Mas Gusó, located nearby the ancient Phocean colony of Emporion, focusing on the oldest periods, from the first small occupations during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age, to the larger and more relevant farmer settlement during the Early Iron Age, which in turn gave way to the Iberian establishment that arose as a result of the foundation of Emporion. The domains and structures of each period are analysed in detail, as well as the different kinds of material culture remains found at the settlement: local and imported pottery, other tools and utensils of the daily life, as well as the most significant faunal remains. Decades after the decay of the Iberian settlement, a new Roman complex arose, an official public construction (a statio), built during the late second century AD, which will be the object of an upcoming monographical study.
