AIRE requests an integral archaeological study of the Castle of Ricote (16/01/2019)

The independent presented a motion to the House that could not be approved by the vote against the PSOE, although it did have the support of the PP.

The motion began by recalling that "in May 2012, a project on the integral study of the castle of Ricote, a site of great historical and symbolic value, began to be carried out by the CEIR (Center for Intercultural Studies Al-Ricotí)".

This project was the result of close collaboration between the City of Ricote, the aforementioned study center and the University of Murcia, as an entity that provides scientific capital, in this case, under the direction of Prof. Dr. D. Jorge A. Eiroa Rodríguez, to whom we owe a great bibliographical contribution in terms of the study of this site.

In the year 2012, AIRE remembers, topographic, photogrammetric and aerophotographic work by Mr. José Gabriel Gómez Carrasco from AeroGraph Studio.

Since the beginning of this term, unfortunately, the CEIR has ceased its prolific cultural activity.

Likewise, the project for the integral archaeological study of the Ricote Castle has not advanced with respect to the initial preparatory work.

The complete project that our Castle needs, according to experts, should include "archaeological prospecting campaigns, with all their derived actions: systematic collection of all archaeological material deposited on the surface of the site, cataloging of emerging architectural elements (morphological aspects, technical / constructive and functional), analysis of the different building units from the methodological assumptions of the so-called Archeology of Architecture, field interpretation of topographic, photogrammetric and aerial survey made in the first phase, obtaining wood samples used in construction to carry out radiocarbon dating (c14), etc. "

Promoting the enhancement of this fortified enclave of the ninth century, protagonist of the rebellion of Ibn Yusuf in Hud against the Almohads (BIC since 1985, by national law, with expansion in 2004) is a pending debt to our history, says the councilor proponent, María Victoria Martínez.

We have recently seen how collaboration between research institutions or higher education and public authorities has been very successful in terms of recovery of assets, proof of this is the agreement between the UMU and the City of Murcia for the San Esteban deposit, as well as the collaboration of the School of Arab Studies-CSIC (under the direction of Mr. Julio Navarro) in the Castillejo de Monteagudo project.

A project of archaeological study on the Castillo de los Peñascales not only seeks to discover and investigate, with the ultimate goal of carrying out an excavation, consolidation, enhancement and possible musealization, it also seeks to preserve a totally unprotected site in the future. and at the mercy of all kinds of context threats.

The recovery of our heritage is a strategic line to guarantee a live Ricote.

The proposed agreement reflected the following:

Urge the Government Team to develop a collaboration agreement together with a general protocol of action with the University of Murcia, under the advice of the Area of ​​Medieval History and the CEIR experts, for "scientific research, training, implementation value and diffusion of archaeological site Castillo de Ricote-Castillo de los Peñascales ".

Also urge the Government Team to resume and promote the archaeological study project designed in its day by the CEIR.

Promote contacts and active collaboration with the research institute "School of Arab Studies-CSIC".

Request the Ministry of Culture to ensure the relevant investment for the study and protection of this BIC, giving you transfer of this agreement.

Request, in the same way, the Ministry of Culture, through the intermediation of the Government Delegate, participation in the financing of archaeological studies.

Commit an annual amount of € 6,000 in the form of multiannual expenditure of the Municipal Budget for the period 2019-2023 (x5) for the possible co-financing of the actions to be developed.
