Archaeology in the Plantationocene (2023)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Rui Gomes Coelho.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Global Archaeologies of the Long Emancipation", at the 2023 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Plantation economies shaped the world we live in by establishing new relationships between humans, but also between humanity and the rest of the planet. This world-ecology, which Donna Haraway and others have called the Plantationocene, is grounded on modes of extraction, accumulation, and circulation that also defined the...

An Assessment of small game exploitation at Gruta Nova da Columbeira in the Middle Paleolithic (Portugal) (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Milena Carvalho.

In Europe, differences in subsistence between Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans are one of the ways in which archaeologists detect behavioral shifts in the Middle to Upper Paleolithic transition. In this paper, I present faunal and stable isotopic analyses of Oryctolagus cuniculus (the European wild rabbit) from levels C.6, C.7, C.8 and C.9 of Gruta Nova da Columbeira, a Mousterian cave site located in central Portugal. I use these data to test two subsistence models: 1. Anatomically...

Between the dream and the conquest: settlement and daily life of the Portuguese in North Africa (15th-16th centuries) (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joana Bento Torres. Luís Carlos Serrão Gil. André P. S. D. Teixeira.

The Portuguese presence in North Africa was materialized through the occupation of cities and fortresses along the coast, especially during the 15th and the first half of the 16th century. Traditional historiography has stressed the limited contact these strongholds held with their surrounding territory, underlining their highly military nature.                                    In this paper we wish to re-evaluate this theory, mainly through the archaeological work we've been developing since...

The bio-sedimentation as monitor element of underwater archaeological sites of Cascais Sea (Portugal). The case of Patrão Lopes military ship. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jorge Freire. Jorge Russo. Augusto Salgado. António Fialho. Frederico Dias.

The archaeological interpretations of the role that environment plays in the nature of the anthropogenic occupations on the coast, are currentely a thorough line of analysis on the Underwater Archaeological Chart of the Municipality of Cascais (ProCASC ).The main focus of our research have been divided into two categories that have direct impact on archaeological sites: a concern about the change in the coastal environment driven by man or nature, and, processes of adaptation and management of...

British Transferware in Portugal (1780-1900). (In)equality, identity and style. (2021)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tânia Casimiro. Inês Castro. Tiago Silva.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Archaeological Studies of Material Culture (General Sessions)" , at the 2021 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. British transfer ware begins to be identified in the Portuguese archaeological record around 1780s. At this time it is an elite’s product and only identified in wealthy contexts. Transfer ware only started to be made in Portugal around 1850. By then lower income households were able to consume this fashionable...

Changes in animal use in the Modern Period of Portugal (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Cleia Detry. Simon Davis.

Portugal has undergone profound changes since the time of the so-called "Discoveries" in the 16th century when new continents were discovered and trade with other countries was intensified. New species were introduced and new strategies of animal husbandry were adopted to adapt to new global and local changes in demography and economy. Zooarchaeology is used in this presentation to show how social change in the Portuguese Modern period can be seen. We study sites including 16th century Crestelos...

The "Correio d’ Ázia" – an early 19th century Portuguese "galera" wrecked in Australia. Preliminary findings. (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alexandre Monteiro. Jennifer Rodrigues.

In 1816 the Portuguese "galera" ´Correio da Azia´ was sailing from Lisbon to China "against weather, seas and wind, fire, shallows and coastal dangers and errors of maps". Carrying general cargo and more than 107.000 silver coins, the ship was never to reach its destination: on November, the 26th, she struck an uncharted reef off what was then New Holland and was hopelessly lost. After a failed salvaged attempt in 1817, the loss of the ship quietly slipped into the History until its story was...

The end of an Era: the final moments of the Pleistocene-like hunter-gatherer lifeway in the Westernmost Eurasian site of Pena d´Água (Portugal) (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Telmo Pereira. António Carvalho.

The 8.2 ky cal BP climatic event seem to have had a striking impact in the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula, where the hunter-gatherer populations kept their Pleistocene-like lifeway until (and possibly through) this event, after which emerged the Mesolithic societies. We present a detailed overview of the Epipaleolithic occupation of Pena d’Água Rockshelter (8.19 ky cal BP) as study case of these final moments, focusing the lithic economic patterns, namely the different patterns of...

GIS Tools for Intra-spatial Analyses: The Portuguese Mesolithic Cabeço da Amoreira Case Study (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nuno Bicho. Célia Gonçalves. João Cascalheira.

The case of the Portuguese Muge shellmounds (Tagus valley, central Portugal), and specifically the case of the Cabeço da Amoreira site, is one of the most interesting regions to study the last hunter-gatherers in Western Europe. However, these sites, are very large with long and complicated sequences and, until recently, had very little excavation control and thus data were not appropriate for spatial analyses. During the last decade, our team used new and precise excavation techniques resulting...

Human ecodynamics of late Neanderthal survival and anatomically modern human expansion at the Middle-Upper Paleolithic Transition, Lapa do Picareiro, Portugal
PROJECT Uploaded by: Jonathan Haws

With support from the National Science Foundation, Dr. Jonathan Haws (University of Louisville) and Dr. Michael Benedetti (University of North Carolina Wilmington) are leading a multi-year study of Neanderthal extinction and replacement by anatomically modern humans in central Portugal. The project brings together an international team to recover high-resolution archaeological, geological and paleoecological records from the excavation of Lapa do Picareiro, a cave in central Portugal. Our...

Human occupation of Lapa do Picareiro (Portugal) during the Last Glacial Maximum (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonathan Haws.

During the Last Glacial Maximum, abrupt climate changes created highly variable paleoenvironments inhabited by human populations across the Iberian Peninsula. Pollen and sedimentary analyses from deep-sea cores off Portugal provide records of regional-scale paleoenvironmental responses to the climate shifts that punctuated the LGM. Archaeological assemblages from caves and rockshelters offer a more local-scale understanding of human-environment interactions during this period. One site in...

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Lisbon, The Tagus And The Global Navigation", at the 2023 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. The following paper intends to disclose the results of the study of some anchors sets found in archaeological contexts, datable from the 15th century onwards in the Lisbon waterfront. Through the study of these archaeological materials of various sizes and appearances, we hope both to provide some useful data for the research on...

Late Magdalenian Lithic Technology at Lapa do Picareiro, Central Portugal (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Melissa Holst. Jonathan Haws.

Lapa do Picareiro, a cave located in Portuguese Estremadura, contains continuous deposits dated to the Late Pleistocene. As one of the highest elevation Upper Paleolithic sites currently known in Portugal, questions are raised about the function of the site during this time. The high resolution data sets generated from the ongoing excavation allow for various types of analysis to help shed light on a broader understanding of the site’s function. This poster presents a comprehensive analysis of...

The LAqua Project - Salvaguarda e divulgação do património cultural subaquático do Concelho de Lagos - aims to locate the underwater archaeological finds that have been reported to the DGPC/CNANS, but that still lack georeferencing. It is also intended to evaluate its characteristics and the...

Metal Objects Were Much Desired. A 16th Century Shipwreck Cargo off Esposende (Portugal) (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ana Almeida. Tania Manuel Casimiro. Ivone Magalhães. Filipe Castro. Alexandre Monteiro. Adolfo Martins. Maria Santos.

This is a paper/report submission presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. During the winter of 2014 the Belinho beach (Esposende, Portugal) was surprisingly filled with wooden parts belonging to a ship, stone shots and metals objects. Everytime the sea was rough new objects would appear on the beach suggesting that a ship was wrecked close to the shore. The confirmation came in 2017 when the shipwreck site was found. Hundreds of objects have been found...

The Middle-Upper Paleolithic transition in southern Iberia: New dates from Lapa do Picareiro, Portugal (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonathan Haws. Michael Benedetti. Nuno Bicho. João Cascalheira. Lukas Friedl.

The transition from Middle to Upper Paleolithic in western Eurasia remains a hotly debated and intensely researched archaeological problem. Recent developments in radiocarbon dating and genetics have permitted some refinements to our understanding of the spatiotemporal process but many issues remain unresolved. For the Iberian Peninsula, Zilhão’s ‘Ebro Frontier’ model of late Neanderthal survival and subsequent replacement by anatomically modern humans has held sway for over two decades....
