The Colonia Clunia Sulpicia is located in the Alto de Castro (Peñalba de Castro, Burgos) the works on the site were directed by P, Palol first then by F. Tuset. The urban complex that extends over more than 130 hectares is a protected archaeological heritage site rehabilitated by the Provincial Council of Burgos and the Junta de Castilla y León. In 2009, a Burgos-based corporation was created: Archaeological Park of Clunia's Roman City Consortium, to provide the management and new frame for future research. The objective of the current scientific team is the in depth study of all the excavated remains, as well as the restoration of the structures that have been already discovered. The interdisciplinary excavation method, the architectural study and musealization have provided important results. The city forum, with a theatre, is one of the recently studied locations, and the study of its architectural aspects has allowed the definition of its use as a public space and offered new proofs on the importance of Clunia in the wider territory. Another of the emblematic locations on which the research is currently ongoing is the city that is known as Cueva Román, where one of the most complete hydraulic infrastructures for the city was discovered that were sulying water to the whole area. Also, inscriptions have been preserved on the raw clay, inside the Roman Cave. Complex interdisciplinary works are currently being carried out by Clunia's Scientific Team, together with the Group of Technologies in Hostile Environments of Aragón's Engineering Research Institute (University of Zaragoza) that will allow a closer approach to the knowledge of the history of the city.
