Abstract

A Prehistoric enclosure (whether it be a henge, a ditched, a walled or a palisade enclosure) is the monumentalization of an open space. Starting with the question of a design or plan in enclosure building, we shall review construction techniques, internal spatial organization, landscape integration and chronology of several generations of Neolithic and Copper age Iberian enclosures. We will also discuss temporality and how it relates to variability in European enclosures layout and depositional practices, making use of analytical categories first introduced by F. Braudel and P. Bourdieu, and concluding that design decisions existed but they were not the sole result of individual or collective agency
