Social graduates and economists participate in Argaric culture workshops in the La Bastida field (27/05/2018)

Fifty social graduates and economists have participated in a theatrical visit to the Argaric site of La Bastida in Totana .

The professionals of both schools have used instruments similar to those of 4000 years ago to grind wheat or make pieces of clay and wax.

Some of the archaeologists working in the "Troya de Occidente", dressed in period, have taught them how to braid the esparto and make beautiful beads with shells, reproducing the customs of the citizens who inhabited the impregnable hill.

The lived experience has been of great interest for the participants because it has united the knowledge of the Argaric culture, of so much relevance for the Region of Murcia, to the playful part with the recreation of uses of the second millennium BC.

Finally, we visited the house that reproduces one of the usual houses in the area with all the usual elements of the homes of the Bronze Age.

La Bastida is one of the best exponents of one of the cultures that dominated the Mediterranean.

According to the researchers, the society of El Argar was a milestone in the development of sedentary life and urbanism, as well as in the formation of political and economic inequalities.

La Bastida offers a unique and exceptional opportunity to learn about this key stage of our past.
