Abstract[EN] The text summarizes the most significant results of the excavation on the site of As Pontes (Abadín, Lugo), developed in august 1997. The excavation was part of the project of archaeological control of the Galician gasline network. During the watching brief of the works an interesting stratigraphic profile was documented in that area, including a small fireplace. A small survey trench was opened, that allowed to document a complex stratigraphic sequence. Subsequently an area excavation was developed, ranging 200 sq. meters. The main results were the identification of a long-term stratigraphic sequence starting with a rather old paleosoil that contains some remains of lithic debitage in a secondary position. An Early Neolithic context follows, consisting of a bonfire and a second structure with firing remains. A second paleosoil is above, in whose surface a wide and well-preserved set of crisscrossed plough marks was documented. That context can be dated back in the Middle Ages and comprises one of the few archaeological examples of medieval agrarian technology in Galicia. Furthermore, the sequence has offered interesting data for a paleoenvironmental reconstruction.
