Excavating in Menorca

In 2007, the Boston University team discovered the exterior walls of a structure that had been built over the ruins of Iron Age Talayotic houses. While starting to clean the excavated area, an unexpected and surprising discovery was made: below a very wide deposit of roof tile, there appeared an entirely intact Andalusian kitchen, the final traces of the last muslim-medieval family that inhabited this house since the Christian conquest in 1287.

After eight years of work at the Torre d’en Galmès site, the program directors, Archaeology Department faculty, undergraduates and graduate students at the Menorca Field School in Archaeological Heritage Management have completed the excavation of their structure of the site.
