They find in Ciavieja the remains of what could be a Roman baths

This is one of the hypotheses on which the team of archaeologists and historians works due to the type of walls and floors found so far in survey 1

The excavation works that are being carried out in the archaeological site of Ciavieja are beginning to shed information on the past of the area.

The professor of the University of Almería and director of the enhancement project, Carmen Pardo, explained yesterday during the open house held by the El Ejido City Council that the type of structures found during the excavation work in the survey 1, of about 600 square meters of extension, throws the hypothesis that in this land there could have been Roman baths at the time.

“Due to the hydraulic floor it has and the type of double-faced walls to heat the area, it is a hypothesis that we consider. It is a very large building, it seems to us more public than private, but there is another area where we have doubts because we have not gone down enough and we do not know if it is part of the same thermal complex or not, "Pardo explained.

On the other hand, in survey 2, which is where the mosaic was found, there is greater uncertainty. “We do not know what there is because practically everything is broken, due to a looting that took place with a machine, but we also have an area to excavate that we hope will give us the key. It points more to residence because of the type of stays that we are seeing and doing on the plane. They are more collected rooms of more domestic material, "said Pardo.

As for dated dates, and as preliminary results it would have been possible to date centuries that had not previously been dated. «We do not have structures but we do have material that tells us that there was possibly a population that continued after Argaric bronze and that links with the Iberian of the 5th century. These data are preliminarily pointing very well and are very interesting because they are going to fill a void that we had in Ciavieja and that was not very logical from our point of view, "said the researcher, who added that" so far all we have is from Roman times. The same we have some rooms in the High-Imperial period, century I and that are abandoned in the III or IV ».

DUE works on the propping of the farmhouses

The municipal company DUE has been working all week on the propping of the farmhouses located inside the archaeological site and that the El Ejido City Council recently acquired.

The objective is to be able to start work soon with the interdisciplinary team of the project inside the buildings, in one of which you can see Roman soil.

The Councilor for Culture, Julia Ibáñez, pointed out that in addition to the development of this project included in the Edusi Funds “we must continue working on acquiring the rest of the parcels that are not owned by the City Council within this site and continue to act when more aid comes out because this deposit can no longer stop. We must continue to carry out actions and carry out structures and covers to protect them and, in short, continue to attend all types of European funds and those of other administrations.

Access building to the site

The Councilor for Culture of the El Ejido City Council, Julia Ibáñez, recalled yesterday that this Monday the deadline for submitting bids for the construction of the architectural complex that will give access to the Ciavieja Site will be closed and that it will become a unique building that will lead to the visitor to the interior to discover this unique enclave declared a Site of Cultural Interest of the Andalusian Historical Heritage.

"A center that I think is going to give great importance to the site and to the entire entrance of the municipality," Ibáñez said.

In this sense, the councilor indicated that "this site is going to be a first level cultural resource and what we want is for it to be very accessible to all citizens, with a language that is understandable to society in general." In fact, the ejido councilor emphasized that in the enhancement and dissemination of new technologies they will be imprisoned, with 3D projections and virtual reality, through the use of QR codes on the exhibition panels. "Today technologies are very important to know the past," said Ibáñez.

On the other hand, she also announced the mayor that shortly the visits of members of the team of archaeologists and multidisciplinary researchers who work at the site will start to the institutes of the municipality to explain the work that is being carried out.
