The Can Gambús-1 necropolis has 47 monumental or complex-type pit graves, with diverse funerary structures and rich and varied grave goods, with only adult individuals found. These unusual features have contributed definitively to the typology of the pit graves, with original contributions on their construction process and covering systems, reuse and plundering as well as the presence of funerary artefacts made of perishable materials. Differences were also observed between the constructions and the composition of the grave goods that may indicate some social differentiation among the individuals buried in the necropolis.

In this article you will find the latest results of the excavations on the site Plaça Major de Castellar del Vallès (Castellar del Vallès, Barcelona). It includes a neolithic settlement (silos and grave pit), parts of a late roman villae and a rural settlement from the late antiquity (5th – 7th c.) with sunken huts, silos and necropolis and with a very wide ceramic and glass collection.

In this paper we deal with the Neolithic burials at the site of Can Gambús-1, belonging of the so called “Cultura de los Sepulcros de Fosa” (from end of the fifth to the beginning of the fourth millennia cal BC). The main aim is to present new data on the procedures of excavation of the pits, the materials used in the covering of the graves and the treatment given to some of the corpses. The detailed archaeological reconstruction of the funerary behaviour has been possible thanks to the exceptional preservation of the graves and the rigorous process of archaeological excavation. Likewise, the grave goods recovered in the burials are presented. Their quantity and quality is outstanding compared with other similar funerary contexts. ROIG, J. – COLL, J.
