S2/Ep.3. The Fossil that Speaks

We present 'The Fossil that Speaks’ (O Fósil que Fala), the third and last episode of Season Two: ‘The Convents’ (Os Conventos).

Season Two of Adegas da Memoria focuses on the ethnoarchaeological research into Os Conventos, a place full of mystery…

On the banks of the Val do Frade (‘The Friar’s Valley’) there is a place that the residents call Os Conventos (‘The Convents’). What we can see of it on ground surface is a series of structures with thick walls forming rectangular spaces and which differ from the layout of the terrace walls… We chose this spot to carry out an archaeological dig with the hope of shedding light on the origins of the Ribeira Sacra.
