We have developed in the last three years a line of interdisciplinary research that studies the landscape of fascist repression and anti-Francoist resistance in a Galician rural area. We have carried out exhumations in cemeteries, we have excavated peasant houses that welcomed guerrillas and we have reconstructed the escape of some survivors who got exiled in the summer of 1936. All this work has allowed us to analyse the materialities and memories produced by the systematic violence unleashed by the rebels in a rural area located in the rear. Our approach based on Community Archaeology has managed to make public the dramatic history linked to these spaces and turn them into real places of memory..
