Archaeology and Friends on Rocks

Baroña is an Iron Age site in Galicia.

Vista from the hill across from the outcrop the site sits on. We hiked through some intense gorse and brambles to get here...

secondary fortified section

one of the complete circular buildings

I believe I was annoyingly asking about seasonal occupation at this moment

I liked how the walls worked so well with the natural rocks. (and check out the blue dot on the top of the rocks, that's a quite tall person)

divergence of walls to create...dead end paths.

It's a dramatic setting for the settlement

in the gate, here is a spot for a gatepost of some sort
