During the 60s and 70s the cleaning and exploration of the cloister’s area tasks were started, especially at the arcades that sustained the Romanesque archway.
Little after that, the Friends of the Seu and the Friends of the Romanseque Art followed researching the walls, indicative of the Romanesque temple characteristics. In 1981 Miquel Cura and Enric Sanmartí studied the Greek and Italian ceramics and corroborated the existence of an Iberian village. The research of the elements found was followed straight away by Antoni Daura and Joan Gaobart who published (1982-1985) more results. All this information was revisited by Eduard Sánchez in his university degree thesis, published in 1987. A year before (1986), under the direction of Antoni Daura and Eduard Sánchez and with the patronage of the city council and the Friends of the Seu Association, several drilling works all over the hill in order to evaluate its whole characteristics were carried out. The works brought up more objects and also part of a necropolis already known before. In the intervention context of the cloister area restoration, leadered by the Friends of the Seu and financed by the Generalitat (Govermment of Catalonia) (1989-1992), new objects were discovered helping in the knowledge of this spot’s historical vicissitudes. We point up several internments and the remains of a bronze reverberation furnace where a bell was forged. These works were started by Antoni Caballé, Josep Pujades and Marta Sancho, in a first phase, and by Eduard Sánchez in a second one, principally focused at the subsoil of the Favets chapel. Finally it needs to be mentioned the work done by David Olivares, from the Arqueociència enterprise, which led to the discovering of medieval habitat evidences.
