Status and wealth are shown in jewellery, house size and imported goods. The most common livestock were sheep and goats, with some bovines and pigs. We highlight that the design feature of these scale-models has been executed based on the analysis and preliminary research for this type of 3-dimensional resource.

In newspapers of the time, the site was described as a “new Pompeii”. Museo de Prehistoria, Another positive impact has been achieved by installing the tactile accessibility devices since they significantly improve the understanding of the conserved archaeological remains observation from different perspectives and at different detail levels and in turn, facilitate a panoramic view of the complex and the way in which the different elements which integrate it are related to each other and to facilitate the communication of concepts and information to sectors of the population which have been traditionally excluded, such as persons with visual disabilities.

It is located in the central route aligned with the view of the consolidated house 1 which it represents. In addition, in the case of blind persons or with severe visual limitations, they are essential for the communication and learning of the concepts of the different scale or magnitude [7] [8] [9]. It is an upland site located on a ridge in the Serra Grossa mountains at meters above the sea level.

As a relevant aspect, it is worth mentioning the difficulty of implementing this intervention in the work site, derived from the geographical location of this site in the ridge of the “Serra Grossa”, without electrical lines, precarious conditions for vehicle access and works execution, the ground variations in order to perform the multiple drilling tasks as well as assuring the care of the original ruins.

The elements installed in this environment demonstrate the potential of objects as the mediators of the visitors’ experience of the site In relation to the accessibility devices, it is fitting to highlight that the 3-dimensional nature of the scale- models provide specific advantages over the existing drawings in the panels: Identification, Analysis and Management.

The implemented resources undoubtedly improve the conditions and quality of the visits to the site and increase lx socialization and integration of people with disabilities in this unknown heritage. It is put up for visits and has an interesting offer of didactic workshops.
