  — Territory and society from Late Antiquity to the High Middle Ages —

This research project is aimed at understanding the changes undergone by the societies which occupied southern Castile during the transition from the ancient to the medieval world. It focuses on analysing the evolution of the economic, social and political forms which can be seen in the routes at the start of our era between the Roman cities of Termantia (Soria) and Duratón (Segovia), using an interdisciplinary methodology related to landscape archaeology. The fundamental hypothesis of this work is that there was never a break between the two periods but an evolution which can be summarised as a change in the scale or dimension of the relations system over three phases: from an extensive scale in the late Roman period to a reduction (via fragmentation) in relations in the Visigoth period and finally a reconstruction based on the existence of minor territories and surrounding areas (alfoces) during the early medieval period.
