A cultural landscape research in a mediterranean mountain area : the "Massis del Montseny project" (Barcelona-Girona) / A. GARCIA MOLSOSA. In "La construction des territoires montagnards : exploitation des ressources et mobilité des pratiques", 2e International Workshop on archaeology of european mountain landscape, organisé par les laboratoires GEODE, FRAMESPA, GEOLAB et Chrono-Environnement.

The present research constitute our PhD Project. It is developped in the ICAC’s Landscape Archaeology team, and its main objective is to obtain a deeper knowlegde of this mountain area as a cultural landscape. The research try to advance in the knowledge of the formation processes of mountain landscapes as a cultural product, and as a result of the socio-environmental interactions. The research is developped in a part of the Catalan prelitoral chain, called “Massís del Montseny”, characterized by an important biodiversity and hard anthropization.
In the poster we present the initial part of the research. In this phase we analize all data that can help us to characterize the human influence in the landscape (archaeological inventories, ethnographical inventories, paleoenvironmental data, ancient cartography). We are also working in the devolopment of GIS Technologies in order to analyze all these information from an spatial perspective. The preliminar data obtained allows us to plan future archaeological works (field"walking, archaeological pits) which will be perform in the next months.
