Summary

The current days are becoming more and more demanding for researches on social sciences, considering the great changes happening globally on the last decades, changes that seem to be happening always on a faster pace than before. Many international institutions, including UNESCO, have been promoting discussions intended to bring new ideas on the role of Humanities on the current society, this from the standpoint of a global perspective.

This challenge is also about the integration of knowledge, considering both the scientific one and the knowledge traditional communities that lived or are living on the sites bring studied. On this scenario, the knowledge of past communities that were obtained through archaeological research, reveal different experiences or alternatives on how to handle the environment. Adding all of these experiences along the past and present, creating a process that will result in the current Cultural Environment.

On this paper the conceptual synthesis on the subject and its applicability on research projects in Brazil is presented, three main topics are analyzed:

• Archaeology and Preservation on the perspective of global challenges;

• Predictive models on Archaeology;

• Cultural Identities and Collective Intelligence.
