The study of leporid accumulations has been widely developed in the last decades. Actualistic research allowed for a better understanding of accumulations by humans, different mammals and raptors. Western Europe archaeological records are rich in leporid accumulations of anthropogenic and other origins (intrusive and exogenous). Cadaval and Nossa S...

POST-GRADUATION: Experimental Archaeology in Prehistory and Protohistory
Presentation
In recent years, the use of a micromorphological method has proven to be a veritable tool to assess archaeological records that are beyond the naked eye. This technique allows you to study records and data that can contribute to and improve the archaeological research and investigations. Aside from a wide range of visible artefacts that can be stud...

A core problem of contemporary society is rooted in the educational system and the divides created between the humanities and sciences that have prevented integrated reasoning. This problem affects society at large and has severely impacted the mindset of leadership, precluding in-depth debates involving citizens that lack an understanding of the b...

In European and many African, Middle Eastern and southern Asian populations, lactase persistence (LP) is the most strongly selected monogenic trait to have evolved over the past 10,000 years1. Although the selection of LP and the consumption of prehistoric milk must be linked, considerable uncertainty remains concerning their spatiotemporal configu...

In the middle Tagus, which defines as a sort of ecotonal area where almost all geological substrata that exist in western Iberia also occur, within a range around 70 kilometres, one may now recognise a diversity of strategies undertook by various human groups, mostly oriented toward the intensification of the use of specific resources. While the re...

The Mesolithic faunal assemblage from Cueva de Los Postes (Badajoz, Spain) is presented and discussed. The faunal remains from different stratigraphic units spatially associated with the Mesolithic funerary use of the cave or preceded them were analysed. The zooarchaeological record is dominated by leporids, generally rabbit but also hare, scarce m...

Resumo: Qual pode ser o lugar da arqueologia e dos arqueólogos na sociedade actual? A resposta que desde há quase meio século, nos vários sectores de actividade, se vem tentando, é de pensar globalmente embora agindo localmente. Pensamos que é tempo de alterar essa equação, que não tem em conta a matriz de redes que se consolidou nos últimos anos....
Article
Quality in cultural heritage attractions is mainly approached from the visitors' satisfaction perspective, and the literature does not contain a clear definition of quality in the management of cultural heritage sites open to the public. The present study aims to reframe this trend. By way of theoretical contribution, we propose a definition of qua...

The caves of Escoural and Maltravieso are the only caves with Palaeolithic rock art in the Southwest Peninsula. These two contexts are similar in their geological characteristics, circumstances of their discoveries, state of conservation, location outside the preferential territorial scope of Palaeolithic art and in the absence of a tradition of sc...

This article presents the results of the construction of an Archaeological Predictive Spatial Model based on the analysis of a set of variables. The main objective of this study is to identify areas of archaeological potential for archaeological exploration, for the Médio Tejo Region. This areas are more likely to occur in new sites, through the ap...

O artigo reflete sobre a combinação de dois conceitos: patrimônio industrial e paisagem cultural. Dessa maneira, propõe-se a análise de ações de gestão integrada e sustentável do patrimônio industrial, no sentido de unificar as políticas públicas de preservação do patrimônio cultural inerente ao processo de industrialização com as de planejamento u...

The growing divide between sciences and humanities has led, in the last decades, to their global weakening, leading to a pragmatic empire of technological solutions deprived from meaning and global reasoning. In parallel, the source o many current disruptive processes is the incapacity of understanding the implications of the global merger of econo...

Foreword Climate is the planetary response of the atmospheric circulation to its changing composition, to the solar system configuration, to the Earth’s rotation and to the oceans’ and continents’ distributions. It displays, as a result, a restless moving pattern, expressed at a global scale by subsiding and uplifting convection cells. These change...

The contemporary understanding that heritage comprises the whole bio and geosphere, due to the direct or indirect anthropic impact all over the planet, allows for a global understanding of heritage that pervades all domains of sustainability research. The current debate on the so-called Anthropocene calls for revisiting past strategies of humans-en...

The Ndalambiri rock shelter in the Ebo region of Angola is a key site for assessing human occupation there given its potential association between stratigraphic contexts and rock art panels. Focusing on the Iron Age and European contact periods, this study characterised the site’s rock paintings using Raman spectroscopy, while also obtaining AMS ra...

Methodology Aerial and terrestrial, nadir and oblique photography were captured and used for VL1 modelling. In order to capture aerial photographs, a DJI P3P drone with a 12Mpix sensor (2-20m agl.) and equipment with an APS-C sensor of 28Mpix was used to capture terrestrial photography. The photogrammetric processing was performed in the software P...

Le comportement humain est conditionné par une multiplicité de variables, qui tendent à s'articuler autour de notions de base qui façonnent la perception de l'environnement et sont à leur tour nourries par une telle perception. Dans le contexte des processus d'anthropisation territoriale, c'est-à-dire de construction de relations avec le territoire...

O modelo sobre o qual a arqueologia cresceu, em Portugal e em alguns outros países, nas últimas duas décadas, foi alimentado por um afluxo de verbas essencialmente orientado para a preservação e valorização patrimonial, com crescente desinteresse pela pesquisa. O ocaso da arqueologia comercial cruza-se com o estrangulamento das bases institucionais...
