Interpretation of the northeastern sector of the city, including his ancient excavations, with seen to a future put in value that integrate the new zone that propose to excavate in the circuit museográfico, that in the actuality shows two houses descontextualizadas and no easily comprehensible.

Specific aims

To) Contrastación methodological between archaeologic technicians no invasivas (GPR-Ground Penetrating Radar) and excavation estratigráfica in open area of the planned sector, to end of testar the innovative technicians of prospección remote that develop teams of investigation of the own UA.

b) Documentation of the sequence estratigráfica of total occupation of the yacimiento archaeologic, understood like a historical sequence of wide length further of the concrete findings. It pretends contrast with current methodology the history of the place from the contemporary uses to the levels pre and protohistoric, to obtain a tool of applicable analysis to all the yacimiento.

c) Obtaining of registers bioarqueológicos and geoarqueológicos (carpología, paleobotánica, palinología, zoorarqueología, osteoarqueología, arquequímica, etc), by means of the systematic sampling of all the sequence estratigráfica to determine the environmental evolution and the degree of antropización of the landscape.
