Territórios Megaliticos: Viana do Alentejo - Anta da Vila de Aguiar

















A anta da VILA DE AGUIAR (CNS - 2863) ou do ZAMBUJEIRO (CNS - 15217) ou ainda do FERRAGIAL DO AGUIAR (CNS - 12554) é, sem dúvida, das mais famosas uma vez que consegue ter 3 registos diferentes na nossa base de dados nacional (Endovélico).

O monumento apresenta câmara com 7 esteios in situ (um deles fraturado) e muito inclinados para o interior.
O corredor é pouco perceptível, em termos de dimensões, devido á presença de tampas e/ou tampas na área.
De realçar o facto deste monumento apresentar esteios de granito muito irregulares (toscos), facto pouco comum nos monumentos megalíticos alentejanos.

Megalitismo do Alto Alentejo

10 de Fevereiro - 18 horas
Associação dos Arqueólogos Portugueses - Museu do Carmo (Largo do Carmo -Lisboa)

Conferência "Megalitismo e comunidades megalíticas no Alto Alentejo: o exemplo da Ribeira Grande"
Marco António Andrade (UNIARQ - Centro de Arqueologia da Universidade de Lisboa)

RESUMO

"Localizada numa zona deprimida entre as serras de São Mamede e Ossa, a área da Ribeira Grande apresenta uma importante diversidade em termos geológicos e orográficos – diversidade que se reflecte na morfologia e distribuição dos monumentos megalíticos e nos padrões de assentamento das comunidades que os construíram e utilizaram.

Partindo de situações concretas, analisa-se o fenómeno de «megalitização» da paisagem nesta área, baseada na implantação dos monumentos e na sua relação crono-espacial. Denota-se uma interessante variedade que se reflecte na situação dos monumentos, na sua integração na paisagem e na sua morfologia.

A questão dos espaços de habitat das comunidades megalíticas é igualmente analisada. À aparente concentração de monumentos megalíticos, formando áreas de necrópole, parece que condiz uma ocupação modular do espaço, com um povoamento disperso e de fraca representatividade arqueológica – típica de comunidades com uma super-estrutura económica baseada na pastorícia transumante e agricultura de pequena escala.

Assim, podemos estar perante um cenário em que as comunidades privilegiam a mobilidade, com assentamentos de curto espectro e sem um claro investimento em estruturas habitacionais – o que não foi, contudo, impeditivo para que grandes monumentos fossem construídos."

A entrada é livre.
