Natural Processes and Anthropic Action: Compromising the Archaeological Heritage in the South-West of the State of Goiás
Studies performed in the South-West of the state of Goiás indicate that natural processes and anthropic action are impacting and jeopardizing the conservation of archaeological sites in the region, namely GO-JA-13 and GO-CP-16, both of which are part of two important archaeological areas in the Brazilian Central Plateau – Serranópolis and Palestina de Goiás respectively. These sites are of high scientific and cultural significance and, together with the intense landscape alterations over the last decades, require a management plan. In this sense, the main purpose of the mitigating measures presented in this work is to stabilize the erosive processes which are compromising the archaeological sites more than anything else.
