Abstract

The settlement and the necropolis of El Calvari (El Molar, Tarragona), dated between the end of the Late Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age, provided various copper-based objects and melting wastes. The archaeological site is located in a mining district, the Molar-Bellmunt-Falset (MBF) area, which presents rich deposits mainly of non-argentiferous lead and copper. Lead isotope analyses performed on some lead-based materials recovered from El Calvari show that these mines were already being exploited at this time. However, lead isotope analyses of the copper-based metals indicate that neither the ones from the site nor those from the necropolis can be related to local mineral resources. Indeed, a great part of these items originates from the Linares mines (Jaén) and, in a smaller part, from mines in the Almería province. In this paper we will discuss arguments supporting the possibility of import of ingots or of finished objects as part of the Phoenician trade in northeastern Iberia.
