Resumen

Tras efectuar cinco campañas de excavación en las áreas “2A” y “G” de Saruq al-Hadid, se localizaron más de veinte estructuras de combustión, de las que desconocemos con qué etapa de producción metalúrgica estaban relacionadas. La secuencia estratigráfica se sitúa en la Edad del Hierro II, e integra un conjunto notable de objetos metálicos y de muestras, que evidencian la manipulación del oro y del cobre. Se han documentado, materias primas y herramientas de trabajo para la elaboración de joyas. La distribución espacial de algunos de los objetos, sugieren rituales y ceremonias, con escenificaciones votivas. Buen ejemplo de ello, pueden demostrarlo los hallazgos de figuritas antropomórficas, serpientes y armas en miniatura, recipientes en cerámica y piedra blanda que son habituales y representativos de contextos arqueológicos asociados a espacios sagrados.
