Studies of religion in the southern Iberian Peninsula in pre-Roman and Roman antiquity, drawing on literary and archaeological sources and examining the different spheres of religious life (funerary and non-funerary, public and private).
The primary goal of this project is to offer 3D images of six selected pieces representative of pre-Roman Iberian culture from the National Archaeological Museum in Madrid.
This project aspires to detect a social identity in the middle valley of the River Tagus during the late Bronze Age and Iron Age, a time of significant changes, by studying the characteristics of land occupation in those periods. The geographical scope of the project is the middle valley of the Tagus, from Talavera de la Reina to Talavera la Vieja, a distance of approximately 60 km, centred on the archaeological site of Cerro de la Mesa.
Study of religious practices and beliefs in the far western Phoenician-Punic world, examining the spheres of life and death and coastal and inland territories, where there is archaeological evidence of a strong presence of Phoenician-Punic communities.
Research into sculpture has yielded significant results in various Mediterranean regions, providing key information about techniques, workshops and styles, but also about the social role of sculptors and their patrons. By studying different examples of Iberian sculpture, we gained a general understanding of the sculpting process, detecting what may be a sculptor's mark for the first time, or the possible function of these types of signs.
