0307 – Coming back

I have been out for a while. Perdigões excavations got my full attention for the last 5 weeks (I will be there one more week in September). So I have not been able to provide you with new information about Portuguese enclosures.

Nevertheless, the results from Perdigões 2015 campaign will provide food for several future posts (and papers). For now, I just display an image of what I think (at the moment) to be the earliest ditch in Perdigões set of enclosures: a small “V” shape ditch, right in the middle of the natural amphitheater. It was baptized as Ditch 13.
