Abstract

This paper analyzed the building techniques based in the use of rammed earth in the Late Medieval fortifications in the province of Soria, Spain. The manorial castles of Serón de Nágima and Yanguas were built completely with rammed earth. However, these techinques are different. Through the study of the constructive signals, we can reconstruct the constructive process and made an hypothesis of the auxiliary scaffolding necessary for the construction. After, other four cases in which there is presence of rammed earth are described: Ágreda, Arcos de Jalón, Caracena and the tower of Martín González or castle of La Raya (the Border). Rammed earth is used in some secondary architectural elements and also as a filling of the masonry walls, but somtimes there are ancient rammed earth walls overlaid with stone masonry.
