Fort-zoom Spanish archaeologists have discovered an impressive structure with 4,200-year-old outer walls and six pyramid-shaped towers, representing the most architecturally advanced Bronze Age fortress.
One of the most relevant elements of the discovery was the secondary door, located near the main entrance The door's arch is in very good conditions and is the first one to be found in prehistoric Europe.
"Some of the fortification traits, such as the massive towers and the secondary door, could be found in some places of the Eastern Mediterranean slightly before 2200 B.C. This might show unexpected political relations between distant regions," Rafael Micó, professor of prehistory at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a member of the "La Bastida Project" direction team, told Discovery News.
Indeed, the fortress contained unique military features. For example, the lime mortar offered exceptional solidity to the construction, strongly holding the stones and making the wall impermeable, as well as eliminating any elements attackers could hold on to.
