Description

Over the past thirty years, medieval archaeology in Spain and Portugal has yielded an enormous amount of historically valuable information. Many of the results have not been widely disseminated, especially when the findings originate outside of well-planned scientific projects. Nevertheless, findings which are the result of emergency operations, pre-construction interventions, or urban projects in our cities can still provide a valuable resource of information.Results of this type are rarely published in a scientific context and usually end up in administrative reports of little consequence.

Our, objective is to contribute to knowledge of the Middle Ages in the Iberian peninsula by once again presenting some of these projects and their findings to medieval scholars in the United States because, as the title of the panel indicates, archaeology is another way of making history.
