portuguese complete PDF version

In the 60’s, the archaeologist Henrique Leonor Pina carried out a series of archaeological findings that emphasized the importance of the megalithic culture in the territory of Central Alentejo. The culminating point was, in 1964, the discovery and the archaeological excavations carried out in the Zambujeiro Dolmen (Anta Grande do Zambujeiro), one of biggest funerary monuments of the Iberian Peninsula. With its personal and very emotive style, Henrique Leonor Pina reconstitutes, in this interview, the memory of those years, allowing us to live deeply the context in which the excavations had been carried through.
