Research projects

El proyecto se propone investigar, recuperar y difundir, en el marco científico, el desarrollo del arte español de las cinco décadas centrales del siglo XX.

Esta propuesta parte de la hipótesis de que, el esplendor artístico y cultural de ese momento, abarcó toda la centuria y no solo la llamada Edad de Plata, denominación reservada por muchos para designar únicamente el brillante primer tercio de siglo.

The primary goal of the project is to determine the characteristics of the different forms of Roman imperialism and the transformation processes brought upon communities and territories. Rome established control mechanisms in those regions before effective military control had been established, and this entailed the dissolution of Iron Age social organization structures and the beginning of a new historical process. This early control, together with the actual submission of land and people which occurred during and after Augustus, enabled the systematic exploitation of rural and mining resources. This approach is based on the extensive research carried out by the group Social Structure and Territory-Landscape Archaeology in the Iron Age and Roman period of the Northwest and West of the Iberian Peninsula.
