In the center and south of Portugal, several prehistoric sites with high densities of clay structures have been detected in the last 15 years. The complexity and the typology of the clay structures identified seemed to indicate a Neolithic chronology, but the lithic industry and the scarcity of ceramics point towards an early phase. Cova da Baleia (Mafra, Lisboa) is the biggest site known, with a high number of archaeological structures (128) which were dated from the Boreal period. The number of the clay structures, the specialization of the lithic socials» (CSIC industry seems to indicate a functional specificity, hypothesis currently in research.
