Archaeological Preservation and the Jesuit-Guarani Missions

Author(s): Tobias Vilhena de Moraes

Year: 2013


This article presents the trajectory of ideas and concepts for Archaeological Preservation, developed during the Administration of Archaeological Heritage at four missionary Archaeological sites in the Southern region of Brazil: São Nicolau, São Lourenço Mártir, São João Batista and São Miguel Arcanjo. From the starting point of an archaeological analysis, and observing the legal and technical norms specified, observation was attempted as to how interface took place with the various areas which make up the cultural fields of those sites: museological, historical, tourism, architecture, anthropological, etc. This is an ample perspective, recognizing the complexity of the human being in the different forms of acting and knowing, and that considers Archaeology as an active interlocutor, in spite of the fact that this science, on a local scale, is still seeking consolidation as an instrument of administration of cultural heritage.
