Núria Rafel Fontanals, Paz Balaguer, Natàlia Salazar

A recent rescue excavation revealed three new burials in the necropolis of Les Obagues and demonstrated that the archaeological site still offers further excavation possibilities. The presence of metal was also documented for the first time. The fact that it was deposited in the tomb of an infant contributes to the consolidation of new possibilities in the context of the introduction of the concept of inheritance.

Keywords: necropolis, urnfields, metal, Late Bronze Age, northwest of the Iberian Peninsula.
