Archaeological Update

The area is steeped in history with evidence of settlements dating back over 2,500 years at the site known as “La Escuera” and possibly 5,000 years at the site known as “El Oral”

In 1967 world famous Archaeologist Solvieg Nordstrom gathered a team of other world renowned experts and along with students from the University of Alicante Archaeological Department started to excavate the La Escura site.

Armed only with small trowels, soft brushes and enthusiasm little by little they persuaded the earth to give up its secrets.

They unearthed amongst other items pottery, kitchen wares, coins and everyday objects dating as far back as the 5th century B.C.
