EXCAVATIONS & FIELD WORK

Dr. Perez-Juez is currently working on a major research project, along with other Boston University Faculty members and graduate students, at the mediterranean site of Torre d’en Galmes, Menorca. This complements her previous research project near the city of Madrid: the excavation of the Late-Iron Age site of Cerro de la Gavia. The excavation of these major settlements shed light on the daily life of the inhabitants of Iberia until and during the Roman conquest. Trade, exchange, acculturation, resistance and other topics regarding the encounter of the two cultures are topics covered by this research (as well as the more traditional ones of architecture, agricultures, etc.)
