0299 – A new one (of two)
Today, just a few hours before giving a talk about large ditched enclosures in the Lisbon Society of Geography through a collaboration with Era Arqueologia, I identified two new ones in Alentejo while I was locating, in Google Earth, some emergency excavations done in the context of Edia water supply network.
Here is the bigger one. Not one of the largest (it has about 2,2 ha “only”), but quite near to two larger ones (Salvada and Monte das Cabeceiras) that are already too close to each other.
It looks that there is an internal enclosure with a wavy ditch and a double ditch defining an outside enclosure.
I do not know yet the chronologies of these new site, but the density of ditched enclosures around Beja is amazing.
