AbstractThrough this contribution, we will try to face the study of productions, technical variability and technological innovation carried out by the first farming communities that settled in the north-eastern Iberia. With this goal in mind, we will take as starting point the technical productions revealed by the Early Neolithic settlement of La Draga (5300-4900 cal BC), a waterlogged site attributable to Cardial ware culture. La Draga site is located in the Lake Banyoles shore and has provided much evidence of products manufactured on diverse organic matters such as wood and plant fibres. This constitutes a great opportunity to approach the study of the technological abilities of these farming communities. Other productions made on more durable matters have also been evidenced just as in other sites within this geographical and chronological framework. That is the case of several rocks, shells, bones and antler which were used as raw materials in other technical productions. All these productions will be studied from different perspectives concerning the developed strategies, regarding the management of resources for the raw materials obtaining as well as those activities related to their transformation into tools and utensils. In the same way, the pattern of consumption of these goods will be analysed, studying their function, amortization and eventual recycling. At the same time, we will try to reconstruct the spatial dynamics of all these activities, both at macro-spatial scale -from the sources to the specific places where their consumption took place- and from a micro-spatial point of view -within the settled spaces, showing the internal organization of settlements-. This way we intend to stablish the designs, traditions and technical skills apprehended from the study of the different assemblages, determining the degree of specialization achieved and contextualizing the results in a broader geographical perspective, trying to explain their technical variability.
