  Multicultural Archeology in Herrera de Pisuerga (Palencia)

EUROPA PRESS: 30/10/2021
IEU students from different countries and cultures have experienced an initial contact with Archaeology during the first 'Autumn Archaeology Camp' in Herrera de Pisuerga (Palencia). As a closing activity to the archaeological campaign, the activity took place in one of the most important settlements of Herrera Archaeological complex, 'Camino de las Ánimas'. This site is the object of a broader research project developed by the IEU Archaeology Unit.
Intending to approach participants to the basics of archaeological activities, the IEU Archaeology Club, the Antiquity & Middle Ages Research Center, IE Campus Life and the IE Arts & Humanities Division hosted this activity. Apart from the basic archaeological activities derived from excavation and laboratory, we tested a geophysical survey. This remote sensing technique opens new perspectives and ways of research when applied to archaeological sites. On this particular occasion, we counted with the help of UK collaborators.

  Boost to the archaeological site of Tiermes (Soria, Spain)

AMARC-IEU: 14/08/2021
The Territorial Delegate of the Junta de Castilla y León, Yolanda de Gregorio, has visited the archaeological works developed by the Archeology Unit of IE University and the Antiquity & Middle Ages Research Center at the site of Tiermes (Montejo de Tiermes, Soria). This intervention belongs to the project of recovery of the northern sector of the Roman city wall. This plan pretends to integrate into the visit the present wall remains, assuring its interpretation for its safekeeping and enjoyment.
The efforts have focused upon two areas, divided by the road that currently gives access to the archaeological site. The current intervention has allowed the record of interesting data about the design and construction development of this monument, the identification of a new semicircular cube and the discovery of several fragments of marble sculptures currently under study.
