In this paper we offer the latest updates of the research project at the castellum of Puig Castellar de Biosca, a military site that can be dated to between 180 BC and 120 BC, situated to the rear of the military frontline which at that time was located in the Ebro Valley. This paper focuses on aspects that have not been previously considered: the accommodation barracks of troops based at this fortification, which we have been able to excavate in recent operations. They provide us with an interesting indication of the possible features of this type of building at stable military bases of modest dimensions, and offer a counterpoint to the well-known models of large stable military camps of this period.
