Place-name maps. About 800 place-names have been found, 62,5 per cent of which have been located with precision. On the map we have indicated the names of the inhabited sites: villas, hamlets (vilars), farmsteads (masos), as well as mountains, rivers and valleys.
Economic maps. We have traced the main communication routes, according to text descriptions and information that we have gathered or that can be seen in today's topographic maps. The salt mines in Cardona were economically really important. We analyse the archaeological landscape of the plane of Bages, of Artés and of the Òdena basin. We have indicated the inhabited sites, the boundaries, the roads, the agricultural areas of each human settlement and some plot divisions which still remained from the Roman era (centuriations).Maps of domains. The most important monasteries of this county were those of the Sant Benet de Bages and Santa Cecília de Montserrat.
