The archaeological project that accompained the rehabilitation of the Mint of Segovia lasted 3 years (from April 2007 to April 2010) in addition to a prior phase of explorations in 2003.

The archaeological study that was carried out resulted in the confirmation and correction of data from previous studies, supported mainly by written records. Primarily, however, its purpose was to document and record all the remains that are preserved and identify them chronologically. During the study, those areas that were affected by the refurbishment of the Mint were excavated.  Furthermore, an analysis of the walls of the most important buildings in the architectural complex was carried out with the aim of obtaining a historical and archaeological sequence of the complex in general.

Due to the enormity of the tasks to be accomplished, the archaeological study was included in the rehabilitation project of the Mint, in coordination with the construction plan, adapting to the means available and the timetable to be followed. Similarly, the most significant archaeological remains were integrated into the rehabilitation project.
