Urban planning at the Castellet de Bernabé

Vitrina 101
The urban layout at Castellet is organized around a central street where departments are distributed on either side. Three areas can be distinguished in all departments: a house in which a high rank family lived; spaces used as working areas, for food processing (grain and oil milling), storing areas and iron forging. Finally, a group of individual room spaces in which workers lived, as dependent clientele of the high-ranking family.
Some characteristic storage containers from the classic Edetan Iberian period (V-III centuries B.C.) are presented. Noteworthy is the fact that these containers, unlike what happens in some houses at the Tossal de Sant Miquel, have not figured decorations because these were restricted to only a few groups.
