El Prado es uno de los escasos yacimientos al aire libre del Neol tico Antiguo de la mitad norte peninsular. En la excavaci n arqueol gica han sido documentadas cincuenta estructuras negativas asociadas a un poblado del Neol tico Antiguo con dataciones absolutas ca. 5295-4690 cal BC. Desde el punto de vista tipol gico y funcional se documentan silos y fosas revestidas, fosas/cubetas no revestidas, fosas funerarias, estructuras relacionadas con el aprovechamiento del agua y una estructura de combusti n. Tambi n hay una fosa ritual de tipo votivo del Neol tico Final (4045-3299 BC). Se presenta un estudio multidisciplinar del nico asentamiento al aire libre del Neol tico Antiguo que ha sido excavado ntegramente en el interior peninsular. Es un trabajo in dito que contribuye a explicar los primeros asentamientos neol ticos del oeste de Europa y las sociedades segmentarias a partir del uso del espacio, la cer mica, la industria l tica, el ritual funerario, la bioarqueolog a, el paleoambiente y la fauna. El Prado is one of the few open-air Early Neolithic sites in the northern half of Spain. In the archaeological excavation of the site, fifty negative structures associated with an Early Neolithic settlement were documented, with absolute datings ca. 5295-4690 cal BC. From the typological and functional points of view, there are storage pits, coated pits, uncoated pits, burial pits, water storage structures and a Polynesian oven. There is also a votive-type ritual pit of the Late Neolithic (4045-3299 cal BC). The authors here present a multidisciplinary study of the only Early Neolithic open-air settlement that has been entirely excavated in the interior of Iberia. 'Life and Death in the Early Neolithic Settlement of El Prado (Pancorbo, Burgos): Constructing the Neolithic in Iberia' is a previously unpublished study that helps to explain the first Neolithic settlements of Western Europe and segmental societies, through analyses of the use of space, ceramics, lithic tools, funerary ritual, bioarchaeology, the paleoenvironment and faunal remains.
