In the latest issue (49.1, 2023) of the journal Cuadernos de Prehistoria y Arqueología de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid the articleLa cerámica ática de Barniz Negro y de Figuras Rojas del yacimiento tartésico de Casas del Turuñuelo (Guareña, Badajoz): estudio tipológico y funcionalidad” was featured, by Pedro Miguel-Naranjo, Esther Rodríguez González and Sebastián Celestino Pérez, from the Instituto de Arqueología de Mérida (CSIC-Junta de Extremadura). This work analyzes the Attic pottery located in the excavations of 2014-2018. It is a set of 34 examples, basically drinking glasses (one-handler black bowls, stemless large plain rim cups, Cástulo cups and cups of indeterminate typology) and three fragments of lekythos. They all come from the amortization phase of the sanctuary and are dated between the end of the 5th century BC and the beginning of the 4th century BC.

The Turuñuelo research team, led by Sebastián Celestino and Esther Rodríguez, has been awarded the 2023 Extremadura Medal, the highest institutional distinction awarded by the Junta de Extremadura, in recognition of their research work. Our most sincere congratulations to the entire team.
