0138 – The last day of 2015 campaign

Recovering the top of the decorated schist stelae (the main part was recovered in August – see below). It has the hedge polished and it was deeply affected by the ploughing, as you can see by the mark.

Over this stelae hedge there was this tube of ceramic, of conic shape. An object usually associated to metallurgy.

And then we covered ditch 7 and ditch 10. Just like the chalcolithics, we opened them to rapidly fill them again.


  1. History repeating itself! Dr. Valera, thank you for taking the time to make Perdigoes accessible to everyone. The pictures are fantastic. The place is a treasure.

    1. Thanks. Just doing my job as an archaeologist.
