Jesús Rodríguez Hernández
Researcher

Graduated in History at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). During his pre-doctoral stage, he obtained a FPU grant from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science to research the communities that inhabited the western Iberian Peninsula during the Iron Age from a social perspective. In addition, this pre-doctoral grant allowed him to carry out international research stays at the universities of Durham and Manchester (UK). His doctoral thesis presented at the UCM received a cum laude mention and has been published in 2019 as a monograph: Poder y sociedad: el oeste de la Meseta en la Edad del Hierro (Power and society: the west of the Meseta in the Iron Age). Subsequently, he began his postdoctoral research work in the framework of the European project REFIT (Resituating Europe’s first towns: A case study in enhancing knowledge transfer and developing sustainable management of cultural landscapes) together with researchers from the University of Durham, the European Archaeological Centre of Bibracte (France) and the UCM. He has also participated in the national projects TRANSVETTONIA (Urbanism and society studies by means of non-destructive techniques) and URBADEN (Low-density urbanism in Vettonia). He has organised and participated in numerous congresses, conferences and seminars. At the teaching level, he has taught Prehistory in undergraduate and master’s courses at the UCM and the University of La Rioja. Since 2018 he has been co-director of the archaeological interventions carried out in the oppidum of Ulaca (Solosancho, Ávila).
