Abstract

Piedras Blancas I is part of the La Peña de los Enamorados archaeological complex (Antequera, Málaga). This complex presents evidence dating from the Neolithic period to the 20th century AD. Research carried out in 2006 suggested that the northern sector of La Peña de los Enamorados had known significant activity between the Late Neolithic and Copper Age, which is basically materialized in the Matacabras rock shelter, where schematic rock art is found, and the Piedras Blancas I site. Fresh fieldwork and laboratory analysis undertaken between September 2013 and November 2015, including intensive surface survey, magnetometer prospection and geoarchaeological analysis, have provided new and more precise empirical evidence to understand this site. In this paper we present a summary of the results obtained as part of the research carried out at Piedras Blancas I, a site of major relevance given its landscape association with the dolmen of Menga
