El Campico de Lébor

During the 1944 La Bastida excavation campaign, Eduardo del Val explored the nearby Chalcolithic site at Campico de Lébor. The site occupies a downstream terrace next to the arroyo of the same name and had been discovered years before by Juan Cuadrado Ruiz, who also took part in the 1944 works.

In only four days in the middle of September, two trenches were opened which brought the finding of various structures excavated in the ground, which were called “holes” and interpreted as being silo and cabin floors. The important movable objects found include stone tools: carved (arrowheads, cutting blades and sickles) and polished (axes and adzes), with few ceramic findings and bonework.
The results of the excavation were published by Eduardo del Val several years later (Eduardo del Val Caturla (1948), “The Mediterranean Bronze Age I Population at El Campico de Lébor, Totana, Murcia”, Cuadernos de Historia Primitiva, Year III, nº 1, pp. 5-26).

This catalogue includes 48 items which include general views of the site from different points of view, structures (holes) and more specific aspects of the excavation.
