Gutiérrez, A. (2005). Un viaje a las fortificaciones medievales de Tarazona y el Moncayo Monasterio de Veruela, 16 septiembre-30 octubre, 2005. Zaragoza: Diputación Provincial de Zaragoza.

Author(s) from Durham


This book is a detailed study of the medieval fortresses (castles, town
walls, towers, fortified houses) erected and maintained during the later
medieval period in Aragon and along the frontier with the medieval kingdoms
of Castile and Navarre. It includes surveys of historical sources,
earthworks, plans and standing architecture, and also archaeological
excavations. This volume accompanied an exhibition staged by the Diputación
Provincial de Zaragoza at the monastery of Veruela, in north-east Spain. It
forms an important initial contribution to historic archaeology in Spain, a
subject which is only now attracting concerted archaeological interest.
