GUIDED TOUR OF THE COLL DEL MORO IN GANDESA

History and heritage of the Iberian site of Coll del Moro in Gandesa

Guided tour of the Iberian site of Coll del Moro, in Gandesa, where a large tower stands at the highest point of the enclosure, testifying to the moment of its greatest splendour (the settlement already existed around 600 BC). However, it was not fortified until the 5th century BC). The Coll del Moro is one of the few Iberian settlements in Catalonia that we know of, and we can visit the necropolis, with three burial areas that date from around 800 to 450 BC. It seems that it coexisted with the settlement in its earliest phase, which was occupied until the 1st century AD. It was from here that trade flows between the coast and the interior were controlled. It is significant that within the settlement there was a workshop for the transformation of clay and the manufacture of textiles.

WHAT CAN YOU SEE IN THE COLL DEL MORO AREA?

A market day in the Iberian city

We present a fun activity based on games as a learning tool that encourages communication, creativity, cooperation and teamwork, among others. The main objective is to understand the relationships and communication that took place between the Iberian settlements and the orientalising cultures. Through the production of a local product, visitors will be able to go back in time and learn about the development of prehistoric markets and the relations between the different Iberian settlements, experiencing the different cultural relations that were established in order to obtain both the raw materials necessary for their production and the foreign products of the Eastern peoples (Phoenicians, Etruscans and Greeks), objects considered luxuries by Iberian society: such as dyes, perfumes, salted fish, wine, etc. The activity is aimed at family/interactive groups. The activity is aimed at a family/intergenerational audience, from the age of 6.

What are we going to do?

  • The main objective of the activity is to raise awareness of the archaeological site and its heritage value.
  • To learn about the Iberian culture of the area.
  • Actively participate in the different dynamics of the activity.
  • To work in a team and establish different social and communicative relationships.
  • Learning through play.

Unravelling Iberian culture: Small Fragments

We present an intergenerational activity based on play as a learning tool that promotes communication, thinking, creativity and teamwork. The main objective is to make the Iberian language and script known through the study methodology used by historians in the world of research. Based on the data obtained from the study of archaeological material, visitors become researchers for a day. They will reflect and draw conclusions about the lives of four people and their relationship in the past. With the help of a “historian’s kit” and the discovery of different inscriptions that we find in different archaeological pieces that have been preserved over time, such as stone, metal and ceramics, we will solve the different questions in order to provide a hypothesis that is as correct as possible. The main objective of this activity is to highlight the fact that archaeology is currently the main source of information for the study of Iberian culture, since its language and writing are known, but have not yet been fully translated. We can read the Iberian texts and know what their language sounded like, but we cannot understand the meaning of the words because the language remains undeciphered. The activity is intended for family/intergenerational audiences, aged 6 and over.
