Mesolithic and Neolithic settlement and mortuary practice in southern Portugal

Project: Research

Layman's description

Research was focused on Mesolithic shell middens with graves in the Sado river valley and megalithic tombs within Vale de Rodrigo, in the province of Alentejo. A tomb was excavated by a Swedish team 1991-2001. The tomb turned out to enclose some very interesting features such as a forecourt with several depositions of pottery as well as interred children.
