In this work, we analyse five sites of Alta Andalucía (Spain): Marroquíes Bajos, Puente Tablas, Eras del Alcázar de Úbeda, and Cerro del Alcázar de Baeza (Jaén province), and la Villa Romana de Gabia (Granada province), with the aim of expanding knowledge on the agricultural practices and food of the prehistoric and ancient communities living there. Among the most important results, the finding of hulled cereal s (Hordeum vu/gare, Triticum dicoccum, and Triticum monococcum) and naked ones stands out. Also striking is the cultivation of legumes, mainly Vicia faba and Pisum sativum. In addition to these species, during the Copper Age, flax Linum usitatissium was cultivated and we documented the use of Stipa tenacissima, a species widely used in the Iberian periodo This agricultural system was reinforced with the cultivation and harvest of fruits such as vitis vinifera and Olea europea, which, depending on the period, would be managed on a greater or lesser scale.
