Harbor Archaeology in Sergipe: Initial Results and Considerations

Author(s): Paulo F. Bava de Camargo

Year: 2016


In this poster, we intend to discuss some results achieved by the project Harbor Archaeology in Sergipe: inventory and contextualization of structures, developed in the Federal University of Sergipe. We will highlight the remnants and structures identified along the Sergipe River, as well as shipwrecks that have been found in Real and in São Francisco Rivers, both bordering the state of Sergipe.

The main goal of this project is to stablish the foundations for the development of a systematic program of Harbor Archaeology in the state of Sergipe, comprehending the location, inventory, mapping, and contextualization of portuary goods, be they structures, buildings or equipment, mobile or real state, in use or abandoned.

That project has already yielded a significant amount of information on the port activities in the 19th and 20th centuries in Sergipe and neighboring states, despite having not yet carried out invasive fieldwork (excavation and gathering of material).
