  Technological innovation for the knowledge of the Roman Tiermes' wall
The application of new technologies will provide new data on Termestine fortification

AMARC-IEU: 15/10/2020
The archaeological intervention carried out by the Archaeology Unit of IE University in 2019 in the northern sector of the Roman wall of Tiermes (Soria, Spain) has documented a sequence that covers more than two millennia of urban transformations.
This innovation project, financed by the Junta of Castilla y Leon, will shed light on the possibilities offered by the latest advances in absolute dating techniques. These methods, based on radiocarbon and luminiscence procedures, will make it possible to clarify the knowledge of the different construction phases developed in this urban sector of the ancient city, with special interest in the construction of its main fortification.
