Abstract

La cultura de El Argar es habitualmente presentada como una formación estatal en la que varias comunidades ejercieron un control social, económico y político sobre amplios territorios. Sin embargo esta configuración geo-política de las sociedades argáricas ha comenzado a ser reconocida como problemática y nuevas investigaciones han revelado discrepancias entre la evidencia y este modelo territorial clásico. Este artículo explora la organización territorial de El Argar a través de estudios paleo-demográficos y de análisis de áreas de captación y sugiere una nueva forma de entender los patrones de asentamiento, la organización territorial y la estructura política en el sureste ibérico durante la Edad del Bronce. El estudio propone que el territorio argárico se encontraba dividido en pequeñas unidades socio-políticas interconectadas en una configuración flexible y fluida. / El Argar culture is usually presented as a state in which a few communities exerted social, economic and political control over large territories. Recent research has recognised this model as problematic highlighting discrepancies between the archaeological evidence and this ‘classic’ view of the Argaric territory. This article explores the territorial organization of El Argar through palaeo-demographic studies and catchment area analyses and suggests a new way of understanding settlement patterns, territorial organization and political structure in the Iberian southeast during the Bronze Age. A fragmented landscape emerges, with small territories linked in a fluid and flexible manner
