The deposit of Tejada la Vieja, was occupated by Tartessian tribes from 8th century b.C. up to 4th b.C.
 
It was set on a little tableland in order to make its defence easier: a wall was built. It also marked its urban limits, since the village was not placed on a specially bellicose area.
 
It is composed by two little walls of masonry full with earth and rubbish. At its apex, circular buttress were disposed. On the stone structure, wooden buttress could be fixed in order to incrase total highness that could get up to 5ms. at many areas.
 
It has an urban design because of its contacts with Phoenicians: rectangular houses with a stone plinth; adobe walls and correspondance between houses and streets.
 
Later, rectangular buttress were superimposed to the wall and the whole city was redesigned, mending public ways and elevating common buildings and stores.
 
The city was left at 4th century b.C.
