Our latest publication: “The Thunderstone”

Just as the Newspaper “el Diaro Palentino” previously announced in the article “Los Secretos de Monte Bernorio” (“Monte Bernorio’s Secrets”), this year, 2014, is the 10th Anniversary of the creation of the “Monte Bernorio in its Environment” Project. And we want to celebrate it by organizing different events that we will be announcing in the next few months. This year, as soon as the research is finished, we will also reveal the surprises that the tessera found at Monte Bernorio has brought us after its restoration.

For now, the research doesn’t stop. There are several articles pending to be published. Today, we bring you the last article published on 2013, at the magazine “BSAA Arqueología”, from the University of Valladolid.

Entitled “Thunderstone found at the Oppidum of Monte Bernorio (Villarén, Palencia). About La Carunia at Pre-roman Cantabria”, Jesús F. Torres Martínez, Antxoka Martínez Velasco and Susana de Luis Mariño, present and analyze the information provided by the polished adzes and axes located during the archaeological interventions at Monte Bernorio. If you want to know why these axes are commonly known as “Thunderstones”, you can download it here.
