0265 - Around pit 40 / À volta da fossa 40


Começamos a escavação na zona central dos recintos, junto à Fossa 40, na área de deposições de restos humanos cremados. Alguns desses restos já voltaram a aparecer em torno à fossa.

We started the excavation in the central area of the enclosures, next to pit 40, where the depositions of human cremated remains were done. Some of them have already appeared around the pit.


Mas o mais interessante foi o aparecimento de fragmentos cerâmicos decorados entre as pedras que envolvem a cista que se situa ao lado da Fossa 40 e que são do mesmo recipiente que há já alguns anos foi recolhido na base da estratigrafia da referida fossa.

But more interesting was the appearing of decorated pottery shards between the stones that surround the cist that is next to Pit 40. They are from the same pot that, some years ago, was recovered in the base of that pit.
