Abstract: Prospections of fluvial Pleistocene deposits aimed to the location of lithic industry in stratigraphic position have been carried out, in the latest years, in the sector of the river Texo middle basin comprised from the river Algodor mouth to El Puente del Arzobispo village. A synthesis of the obtained results and a general evaluation of them are displayed in this article. It is remarcable the human occupation traces ascribable to the period of time comprising the formation of the +105 m and +50 m terraces of the river Texo, inclusive. Likewise it is worth noticing the discovery of the acheulian archaeological site of Puente Pino, which nowdays is being sistematicaly excavated and studied, as well as the confirmation of the archaeological character of La Casa del Guarda site, both dating from the Middle Pleistocene and with industry in primary position; the second one, besides, containing associated fauna.
