The IE Archaeology Unit coordinates survey work at the archaeological sites of Las Pizarras (Coca, Segovia), and Doce Cantos (Palencia)

AMARC-IEU: 26/08/2019
The main objective of the initiative is to detect archaeological remains preserved under the ground surface of the sites, where IE University Archaeology Unit is currently carrying out several research projects. The surveys, financed by the Junta of Castilla y León, employed geophysical techniques on the surface of these sites (magnetometry and ground-penetrating radar) and were carried out last August by members of Antiquity & Middle Ages Research Centre and Magnitude Surveys Ltd.

  The Junta documents the wall of Tiermes for an upcoming restoration
The data obtained from this field work will be used to draft a consolidation Project

SORIA NOTICIAS: 09/07/2019
With the aim of archaeologically documentation of the wall of Tiermes (Montejo de Tiermes), obtaining precise data on the technical and construction characteristics of its inner face to determine the levels of circulation, the state of the foundation and the state of general conservation, the Junta of Castilla and León has developed, from the end of May until last weekend, a campaign of excavations in two areas of its northern sector. (...) The ultimate purpose of this intervention is to obtain data that will serve as a basis for the drafting of a consolidation project and its value, which will allow this monument to be integrated into the itinerary of the site’s visit, by providing the interpretation of existing remains. The archaeological works are being carried out by the Archaeology Unit of IE University.

Workshop of historical games at the Convent of Santa Cruz La Real

AMARC-IEU: 14/05/2019
Olivia Reyes, member of the Archaeology Unit of IE University, deciphers dynamics and origins of a good part of popular games through the information provided by archaeological remains. In many cases, their rules have not survived. In others, they are at risk of desappearance, due to the so-called ‘new technologies' flourishing; useful in some issues, but far away from the socializing value of tradicional leisure activities, at the same time. The workshop was designed as a didactic resource, focused on perceiving the social context in which games were enjoyed and conceived.
