The land where the city of Girona was to emerge possessed all of the conditions necessary for human settlement during prehistoric times. It had abundant woodland and a plain rich in rivers and streams, which permitted human subsistence through hunting and gathering. The production economy appeared in the Neolithic age, with ceramic work and stone polishing. Before Gerunda was founded, there were a number of important Iberian settlements which divided up the domination of the territory and traded their surplus crops and livestock with the towns of Ullastret and Empúries.
