The aim of the project is to study the patterns of hydraulic systems in the rural settlements of Al-andalus, combining field work techniques and documentary and place-names evidence. The settlements chosen for such a study are the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, l'Alt Maestrat (Castelló), Corbalán (Zaragoza) and the almunia of "Alamiría" (Córdoba). Special attention will be given to the congruency of size relation between areas in order to try to discern the social logic of the settlements and the peasant strategies of production and the expected volume of that production. Another aim of the study is to establish the effects and radical transformations of the feudal conquest of these hydraulic spaces. Also an effort will be made to identify any hidraulic systems produced indigenously before the Arab and Berber conquest and settlement.
