    Querns and Mills in Mediterranean Antiquity : Tradition and Innovation during the First Millennium BC
    (Ausonius Éditions, 2023-12-22) Alonso, Natàlia; Anderson, Timothy J.; Jaccottey, Luc
    After thousands of years of exclusively grinding with a to and fro motion, several new types of mills appeared and evolved in the Mediterranean during the last millennium BC. The first centuries of this millennium saw the development of a variety of new forms for both the upper and lower stones of these early back and forth querns. Yet the main changes and innovations came later, around the middle of the millennium, with the introduction of new types of mills including the manual rotary quern, the hopper mill and the Iberian rotary pushing mill. Although the historical circumstances of this period differ between the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, these changes emerged precisely in the second half of this millennium, a timeframe characterised by a technological interaction, or lack of, between the different cultures of the Mediterranean world. The new milling systems introduced during this period represent a turning point in the history of processing cereals and other materials. However, many questions as to the causes of the introduction and evolution of these mills and their socio-economic repercussions remain unanswered. The findings of the studies in these proceedings therefore represent modest but necessary advances in this vast and compelling field of research.

    Social Cohesion and Jewish Otherness in Late Medieval Catalonia
    (Brepols, 2023) Sabaté, Flocel
    The rulers of Catalonia during the high Middle Ages tried to maintain the multi-ethnic character of their country, as explained by Maria Bonet Donato in the previous chapter, always guided primarily by the economic and ideological interests of Christians who were the great landowners and who were at this point adapting their beliefs to the values introduced by the so-called Gregorian Reforms of the eleventh and twelfth centuries. We are now going to analyse how this evolved in the following centuries, in the Catalonia of the late Middle Ages. The values on which the cohesion of society was based conditioned the criteria for integration and exclusion. The outlook and treatment that the dominant Christian society in late medieval Catalonia offered the Jewish minority was an excellent paradigm.

    La construcció de sitges amb eines de fusta o banya i de ferro al Centre d’Experimentació Protohistòrica de Verdú
    (Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya-Girona, 2013) Prats Ferrando, Georgina; Alonso, Natàlia; Cantero, Francesc; López, Daniel; Palomo, Antoni; López Bultó, Oriol; Cano, Alfredo
    Durante la primera fase de experimentación agrícola en el Centro de Experimentación protohistórica de Verdú se ha llevado a cabo la construcción de seis silos de almacenamiento (troncocónicos, globulares y cilíndricos). Según las herramientas empleadas (picos de cuerno y palos cavadores en madera, y picos de hierro) corresponden a una teconología asociada al Neolítico/Edad del Bronce y la Edad del Hierro/época ibérica. Se ha analizado el proceso de excavación de los silos y se ha experimentado sobre el proceso de almacenamiento y de sus capacidades.
