AbstractThe link between pathways and barrows has been a common mechanism to elucidate the structure of megalithic landscapes in Iberia. Since the 1970`s, barrows were presented as the landmarks that ruled the displacement of prehistoric people in their nomadic lifestyle as drovers. Nowadays, the nexus between pathways and barrows is far from being explained, and the analysis of Iberian megalithic landscapes has evolved to a more thoughtful stage where GIS has become the ideal platform to test such hypothesis. Moreover, the relationship between the pathways and other properties from landscape, as perceptual questions might be, has been reconsidered. In this case, we present our recent works in two main areas from Spain: the Sedano (Burgos province) and Alconétar (Cáceres province) areas, where different approaches for linking displacement with the patterns of location of barrow have been tested. We will also discuss the importance of using different algorithms and analytical categories to enlighten what can be determined as mobility and how to make it quantifiable. We relay also in ethnographic sources to test models against the evidence.
