Excavation of the archaeological site of La Rana / Les Puntes
Between February 12 and 23, the first excavation campaign was carried out at the Rana / les Puntes archaeological site within the municipality of Gata. The intervention, promoted by the University Institute of Research in Archeology and Historical Heritage of the University of Alicante and the Museum of Xàbia, has been supported by the Town Hall of Gata and has been carried out with the participation of students of the university
The Rana site, known since the 90s, is a pottery from Roman times that produced various types of amphorae - especially flat base, type Galoise IV - as well as other common ceramics (dishes, jugs, jars, basins, etc ...) and construction materials.
Today, we will present some of the data obtained in this first campaign, which is still in the phase of inventory, classification and study.
