Remains of carved flint and polished stone axes speak of a place inhabited by man for centuries
Becerril de Campos can boast a long history. History that goes back thousands of years ago, and that over time has been enriched thanks to being a place of settlement for many different peoples.
Iberians, Romans… Even remains of the Bronze Age! Becerril de Campos can boast of all this, where carved flint and polished stone axes were found in his day, as well as another ax from the Bronze Age; and from the Roman era there is evidence of sarcophagi, as well as other objects left by the Iberians.
What do we mean by this? That the story of Becerril de Campos is rich. Visigoths also populated this land, which was depopulated after the Muslim invasion. It would be Alfonso III, already in the second half of the ninth century, who would be responsible for repopulating it. Even, this is a villa through which Emperor Charles V passed on his first trip to Spain, back in 1517.
