Segregated Fields. Castilian and Morisco Peasants in Moclón (Málaga, Spain, Sixteenth Century)

Segregated Fields. Castilian and Morisco Peasants in Moclón (Málaga, Spain, Sixteenth Century) The aim of this paper is to analyze the distribution of the agricultural fields in the alquería of Moclón (Málaga. Spain) after the Castilian conquest of 1485. Moclón was populated by seven morisco neighbors and five Castilian settlers during the sixteenth century, until the expulsion of the Moriscos in 1570. The study of written evidence and the archaeological survey have permitted us to locate the fields of both communities. Clearly, there were segregated areas of irrigated and dry fields. The internal distribution of the Moriscos’ fields is also analyzed. Finally, some explanations for this segregation are put forward. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Historical Archaeology Springer Journals

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyze the distribution of the agricultural fields in the alquería of Moclón (Málaga. Spain) after the Castilian conquest of 1485. Moclón was populated by seven morisco neighbors and five Castilian settlers during the sixteenth century, until the expulsion of the Moriscos in 1570. The study of written evidence and the archaeological survey have permitted us to locate the fields of both communities. Clearly, there were segregated areas of irrigated and dry fields. The internal distribution of the Moriscos’ fields is also analyzed. Finally, some explanations for this segregation are put forward.
