By Pedro Arnau Fernández, J. Simón Gornés Hachero and Hans Peter Stika

Abstract

In this paper we present the first work undertaken on the necropolis of S’Alblegall (Ferreries, Minorca). Hypogeum nº 3 of this necropolis has produced interesting traces for the study of cereal agriculture in the island of Minorca, in the middle of the XV cal ANE century. It allows us to propose a new hypothesis about the construction of hypogea in the island, as well as to review the different archaeological sites on the island that have signs of cereal cultivation.<br><br>En este artículo damos a conocer los primeros trabajos realizados en la necrópolis de S’Alblegall (Ferreries, Menorca). El hipogeo nº 3 de esta necrópolis ha proporcionado interesantes indicios para el estudio de la agricultura cerealística en la isla de Menorca en un momento que situamos hacia mediados del siglo XV cal ANE. Ello nos permite plantear nuevas hipótesis sobre la construcción de hipogeos en la isla, así como realizar un recorrido por los distintos yacimientos arqueológicos menorquines que han deparado evidencias del cultivo de cereales
