The archaeologists of the Roman site of Cerro de los Almadenes have found during the excavation work the base of a Roman ornamental element that may well belong to a fountain, basin, or something similar. The piece has been transferred to the Museum of Segovia, where it will proceed to its archaeological and artistic study to try to define its precise chronology and its functionality.
Cerro de los Almadenes is one of the most important mining-metallurgical archaeological sites in our country.
The excavations at the site have been carried out since 2009 by the team of the Spanish Society for the History of Archeology without interruption. The research works are prepared with the support of the Junta de Castilla y León, the Otero City Council and various companies and associations, such as the Otero de Herreros Neighborhood Association.
