Today’s episode (#86) – 17th March 2023: “110 Histórias | 110 Objetos” (“110 Stories, 110 Objects”) – “An archaeological collection at Técnico”

A box full of archaeological remains, exhibited in the Décio Tadeu Museum, at Técnico – Alameda campus, holds some clues that may help us understand what Lisbon was like seven thousand years ago. This testimony of the millenary occupation of the capital by human beings was discovered after some archaeological prospections made in Monsanto, in 1917, directed by Ernest Fleury, the first professor of Geology and Palaeontology at Técnico. Among the archaeological remains found are prehistoric human bones, something rare to find in the city.
