Breve resumo:
A single individual burial in a pit was identified in the course of the preventive archaeological intervention carried out in the former Sommer Warehouses, located on the right bank of the Tagus, in the urban area of Lisbon. From the typology of the vessel that accompanied the deposition of a corpses in fetal position, as well as the absolute radiocarbon date obtained, this grave belongs to the Early Neolithic. It is the only occurrence of this nature hitherto recorded in the West of the Iberian Peninsula, and the similarities of implantation of the tombs of El Retamar on the lagoon coast of Cadiz with a similar geographic implantation is emphasized.​
