Estudio tecnológico y simbólico de los puñales Miraveche-Monte Bernorio

Technological and symbolic study of Miraveche-Monte Bernorio daggers

Estimated timeframe: 2021–2024

Project leader: Susana de Luis Mariño

Participants: Bárbara Culubret Worms, Margarita Arroyo Macarro (Conservation Department)

Daggers of the Miraveche-Monte Bernorio type, consisting of dagger, sheath and baldric, are almost exclusively limited to the northern central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula and were produced between the fifth and third centuries BC. These pieces, nearly fifty of which have been found to date, have been extensively studied from a territorial, chronological, typological and symbolic perspective. However, technological studies are rarer, despite the fact that these pieces are a paradigmatic example of specialised polymetallic weapons technology in the Iron Age.

This study focuses on conducting analyses that will reveal information about the metal composition of the pieces in order to gain a deeper understanding of their chaîne opératoire and their social aspects. To this end, we have enlisted the aid of independent researcher Dr Marc Gener-Moret.

MAN Preventive Conservation Plan

Estimated timeframe: Ongoing

Project leaders: Teresa Gómez Espinosa and Bárbara Culubret

Participants: Raquel Acaz, Margarita Arroyo, Silvia Montero, Durgha Orozco

The aims of the Preventive Conservation Plan for the MAN collections are as follows:

  • To identify risks and agents of deterioration and act accordingly, implementing coordinated and effective strategies to safeguard the cultural assets that make up the museum’s collections and prevent or mitigate future deterioration and loss
  • To create the necessary infrastructure for continuing our normal preventive conservation work

Continuity: Preventive conservation at the museum is not a project that has an end date; a PCP must have long-term validity, entailing coordinated, systematic efforts rather than sporadic preventive interventions.
