Other nearby perpendicular streets organise lateral areas and spaces without buildings laid out as squares.
These intense campaigns discovered an important part of its urban structure and also provided important findings of moveable nature, where we emphasise small sheet leads with Iberian writings and, specially, a little bronze figure that has passed on to posterity as the Warrior bsstida Moixent. It is put up for visits and has an interesting offer of didactic workshops.

Other agricultural tools found at the site include billhooks, sickles, hoes and rakes, forming one of the most complete tool assemblages known for pre-Roman agriculture in Spain. These elements are reproduced with different texture and reliefs which are accordingly depicted in a legend which permits blind persons to previously identify them for their subsequent discrimination.
In its final phase of occupation there are three towers two between the West and South gate and another larger one, by the East gateprobably because the site was under structuring before being definitely destroyed and abandoned.
Three tactile scale-models were executed which provide new resources for the accessibility, the perception and the interpretation of the site. For more information please consult our cookies policy. The blockage of two of the gates, remains of a fire, and the numerous weapons and personal items found in the streets all indicate a rapid and violent end to the site’s occupation.
The essential economic activity was agriculture and farming.
This fact combined with the limited economic resources available made it necessary to establish several priorities and in the end, the scope of the original project had to be cut back. The elements installed in this environment demonstrate the potential of objects as the mediators of the visitors’ experience of the site In relation to the accessibility devices, it is fitting to highlight that the 3-dimensional nature of the scale- models provide specific advantages over the existing drawings in the panels: It is located in the central route aligned with the view of the consolidated house 1 which it represents.
This facilitates its interpretation and comprehension as a specific space at a specific scale in relation to its environment. Master’s Degree in Cultural Heritage: Knowing how life was in an Iberian village 2, years ago is possible thanks to the archaeological research developed in sites such as La Bastida de les Alcusses, located at the area of Moixent.
This project has been specifically promoted by the Museum of Prehistory of Valencia and covers the enhanced experience and tourist use of the archaeological sites from the Iberian Age in the inland municipals of the Valencia province in which the Bastida de les Alcusses forms a part.
Ancient cities of the Iberian Peninsula. Specifically, the installation of the handrail has contributed to the enhanced experience of the zone’s landscape by creating two scenic viewpoints which today represent two small visitor rest and observation areas. Although the site’s degree of conservation is very good, the basements of the buildings are the only structures conserved in situ and similar to what occurs with other deteriorated architectural artefacts, reading the volume of the buildings is difficult based solely on the conserved ruins.
Some wild species were also hunted, included rabbits, hares, deer, mountain goats and wild boar. We highlight as an essential methodological aspect, the crucial involvement of the specialists, in this case, the archaeology team responsible for this site, in the selection of the contents for the tactile scale-models and in the assessment and the suitability of the solutions implemented by means of the simulated display images.
The inhabitants of la Bastida lived in a stratified society. In fact, ONCE, the Spanish Organisation for the Blind at the Valencian Community has already promoted organised visits to Bastida de les Alcusses in their annual activities schedule, which has been successfully used by the project’s technical heads in order to evaluate and test the implemented scale-models and the verification of their usefulness.
The objects recovered in the excavations are on display in the Museum of Prehistory in Valencia, although the archaeological museum xe Moixent also exhibits a selection of findings. The specific qualities of the natural landscape are enhanced, such as the aromas, temperature, irregular terrain and variety of the environment, thermal sensations, etc.
It is considered to be one of the principal Iberian archaeological sites of the Valencian Community due to its sudden abandonment and good preservation.
