This chapter re-examines the San Chuis hillfort site and presents the results of an interdisciplinary study undertaken by a team of different specialists, including geoarchaeologists, archaeologists, and geologists from three different research institutions in Spain. It first describes the results of recent archaeometrical research (including geophysical prospection, radiocarbon analysis and physical-chemical characterization of the metallic materials). It then details analysis of the pottery of San Chuis hillfort using a methodology based on Technological Operative Chains (TOC). Thirdly, it presents the first typological sequence of pottery for western Asturias (from the early and later Iron Ages and Roman period) followed by the social interpretations of certain handmade technologies.

Keywords:   San Chuis hillfort, archaeological sites, archaeometrical research, pottery, handmade technologies
