Technicians of the General Direction of Cultural Assets, of the Museum City of Mula and of the team director of the excavations of the Almoloya are studying the deposit in the museum muleño of part of the materials recovered in the deposit located between the municipal terms of Mula and Pliego .

The general director of Cultural Goods, Juan Antonio Lorca, indicated that "the contacts and the study are already carried out so that said materials can be deposited in the funds of the Museum Ciudad de Mula, as integral center of the Regional Museum System, as well as in the Archaeological Museum of Murcia, for those pieces or materials that require, where appropriate, a special treatment or monitoring by the restoration workshop that has this last space.

The City of Mula Museum, of municipal ownership, was incorporated into the Regional System in November 2016. Located in the Convent of San Francisco, it houses funds of archaeological materials from the municipality of Mula, as well as historical documents and facsimiles that make known as a whole the history of the city and its surroundings, from the Paleolithic to our days.

The excavations of the Argárico deposit of the Almoloya have allowed to define the master lines of a settlement dated between 1750 and 1550 aC, with at least three phases of occupation.

It is structured in nine architectural complexes separated by alleys, and divided into rooms, workshops and warehouses, in addition to the presence of a cistern in one of them.

In its urban layout stands out a peculiar room interpreted as a meeting room and / or audience, following the hypotheses put forward by the researchers, which would be configured as the first specifically political and permanent precinct in the prehistory of continental Europe.

It was in the basement of this great room that the so-called 'princely burial' (AY-38) was discovered, which hosted a double burial and a considerable trousseau of a special richness composed of a silver diadem, gold and silver dilators, earrings silver and copper, and necklaces, among others.

Part of this trousseau is currently on display at the temporary exhibition commemorating the 150th anniversary of the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid.
