European cash for La Bastida
A GRANT of €104,760 has been awarded to the friends of La Bastida archaeological site (ASBA) in Murcia by the EU's Creative Europe programme.
They are collaborating with Barcelona university in the excavation of the Bronze Age site.
The area in Totana was inhabited 4,000 years ago by the Argaric civilisation, where they built one of the largest Bronze Age cities in Europe.
