The Guadajoz Project. Andalucia in the First Millennium BC Volume 1 Hardback
This volume makes an excellent site report in its own right, but the general, multi-period overview of social and settlement history, something which has been sadly lacking in past research, makes this a valuable addition to Iberian archaeology.
Trial excavations were made at the site of Torreparedones in the Guadalquivir Valley between 1987-1992.
This volume presents the results of the fieldwork and specialist studies: ceramics, small finds (metal, bone, glass, baked clay, worked stone, architectural elements), figurines, fauna, botanical remains and settlement history.
This evidence is then used to postulate about the overall development of societies in central Andalucia from the Neolithic to the Medieval period.
An important study of a regional area with a complex archaeological sequence - the value of this type of study cannot be over-emphasised.
