AbstractLa Draga is an early Neolithic pile-dwelling settlement (5300 to 4900 cal BC), located on the shore of Lake Banyoles (Girona, NE Iberia). The site stands out for being one of the first evidences of the Neolithisation process in the NE of the Iberian Peninsula and for having provided an exceptional sample of organic remains thanks to the preservation of its archaeological layers within anoxic conditions. Studies of the subsistence and technological strategies taken by this first farming community have already been performed and knowledge about these has been obtained. Recently, several intra-site spatial analyses have been carried out in order to go further with the currently existing data and to try to elucidate how La Draga’s dwellers were socially organised. In this connection, the results obtained by the spatial analysis developed for characterising the architectonic remains and the associated economic practices are presented. Stratigraphic information and the reconstruction of post-depositional processes were taken into account to analyse the complex tridimensional spatial pattern of the archaeological remains. Using advanced geostatistical and multidimensional tools we tried to distinguish between activities that might have taken place over the timber platforms, from discards that might have been accumulated over the ground but under the timber platforms. The aim of the study, ultimately, to approach the concept of household at La Draga.
