Abstract
The exploitation of natural resources, both terrestrial and marine, has conditioned the presence of population centers since prehistoric times in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park. As it intensified since ancient times, the human footprint on the landscape was accentuated, breaking the fragile coastal erosion-sedimentation balance by interacting with natural processes, especially from the 1950s; producing changes in the coastline that affected the archaeological sites. One of our lines of research is to reconstruct the original environment of these habitat and production sites bearing in mind these transformations.
