This week has begun the archaeological excavation 2015 in Sant Pau de Riu-sec. Works will last two weeks and will focus on the area in front of the entrance to the church. This place was already partially excavated in the 2007 – 2008 campaign where part of the parish cemetery was unearthed with tombs from 12th to 19th centuries, and also the remains of a roman villa (s. 1st – 2nd centuries AD). This campaign is funded by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the government of Catalonia a part of a Research Project in which there is are also involved Sabadell city council and the Catalan Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICAC) . Master students from UAB participate in this archaeological excavation. We’ll keep you informed…
Written sources and lately archaeological practices have proved the existence of potteries in the city of Sabadell. First potters appear in written documents from 14th and 15th centuries. Proliferation of pottery is documented during 17th and 18th centuries and in 1794 we count 14 pottery workshops and a production of 313,540 pieces. Throughout this century pottery production grows exponentially and achieves its greatest development, and can be found in all regions of central Catalonia. The last 25 years, thanks to the archaeological excavations that have been carried out in the city centre of Sabadell we have a better understanding of the activity and the modern pottery production in the city. So, we now have a total of seven different workshops physically identified. These workshops can be dated from the mid-17th century and developed during the 18th century, with a significant concentration of pottery workshops in the northern part of the city, in the old medieval district of El Rav

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 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.
