Abstract

The project intends to widen the understanding of Sambaquis groups in the coast of Pará. Studies will be oriented, in a first moment, to the following aspects: a) Characterization of the Sambaquis; b) Elaboration of maps showing the location of this type of archaeological site; c) Definition of the different environments and places signalled in the maps; d) Study of the Sambaquis insertion in the landscape while trying to assess patterns of settlement; e) Preliminary establishment of an occupation chronology for the coastal area with an emphasis on the Sambaquis; f) Identification of other types of places somewhat related with the Sambaquis. In sum, those topics – amidst others that will be considered – seek to clarify questions related with the environment, adaptation procedures, use of resources and subsistence strategies, that will provide information about the modus vivendi of ancient Amazonian fishing groups, gatherers and hunters.
