A Arqueologia da Idade Moderna em Portugal – contributos e problemáticas

This paper aims to discuss the objectives, concepts and contributions of Modern Archaeology in Portugal. This area of research, sometimes called Post‑Medieval archaeology, allows new knowledge about urban, rural and maritime archaeology, and the daily life of populations, in a period between late 15th century and the last third of the 18th century. The information concerns urbanism, architecture, ships, and other structures but also life and death, aspects that in an individual or global perspective will produce «History».
