Abstract

© 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS. The complex of La Bòbila Madurell-Can Gambús is one of the most remarkable site of the Iberian Peninsula. Various excavations carried out since the early 20th century led to the discovery of numerous remains from the Neolithic to the medieval and modern eras. In this regard, the Neolithic structures constitute one of the largest cemeteries of Western Mediterranean for this period. In this paper, we present a small group of graves, yet unpublished, located in the northern part of the necropolis, apart from the other concentrations of burials.
