In this paper we examine the potentiality of oral traditions from the peasant folklore in order to identify historical battlefields and war evidences related to conflicts from different chronologies –Roman marching camps, medieval fortifications or Spanish Civil war trenches–. We assess their potentiality as informative sources for archaeological prospection. Thus, we focus on methodological issues and the problems we found during our research in the Cantabrian Mountains.
