0107 - The small enclosure of Carrascal (Porto Torrão)

It was a project developed by Era Arqueologia, and the geophysics was, of course, done by Helmut Becker with the results he usually provides.

Just 800 meters way from Porto Torrão traditional limits, and associated to a large area of necropolis, here is a small and perfectly circular ditched enclosure, with just 20m diameter.

A gate is visible at NW, possible orientated to sunset summer solstice.

At Porto Torrão things are much more complex than everybody expected and, I would argue, still expect.
