The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) has received some degree of international attention in recent years ... The revelation of atrocities commited by the Nationalists during and after the war has been crucial in changing the popular image of the period... This talk is based on an archaeological project conducted between 2008 and 2012 in which battlefields, concentration camps and prisons of the civil war and the Franco dictatorship were excavated all over the country.
