Laboratory of Ideas: Re-constructing scenographies

News of the project 27/01/2015

In relation with Theme D of NEARCH Project: Archaeology in a changing economy: towards sustainability, Institute of Heritage Sciences (Incipit-CSIC) is organizing the laboratory of ideas “Re-constructing scenographies”, to be held in Santiago de Compostela on September, 24 and 25th 2014.

The aim is discuss about the future economic scenarios for archaeology, including the possibility for a radical alternative economic scenario for heritage as a broader field of activity. Is an economic use of Heritage, sustainable and alternative to the existing, possible? In what ways can archaeology change to conform to the new models and paradigms that are emerging? How can archaeology contribute to this process of transformation of the hegemonic paradigm? The objective is to generate seminal ideas around these questions, as an essentially exploratory and thoughtful process, not obtained specific data or closed proposals.

iBook: ONS an inhabited island

This iBook offers the results of a research project conducted by the Institute of Heritage Sciences (Incipit), about the human presence on the Island of Ons from prehistoric times to the present. The book deals with questions about how, when and by whom the island has been inhabited over the years; what vestiges of human presence remain; or what daily life is like for the few people who inhabit the island on a permanent basis.

Booklet: As outras caras do patrimonio

In the context of the project: “Heritagization Processes in Camino de Santiago: Santiago-Fisterra-Muxía”, Institute of Heritage Sciences (Incipit-CSIC) developed a specific activity with Vilaserío’s neighbors, one of the Camino of Santiago villages.

The objective of this activity was to know how pilgrimage affects to the daily life of this village and how the heritagization processes are taking place. One of the activity conclusions is that there is a huge gap between the heritage policies and the ideas that the inhabitants have about this issue. This booklet reflects “the other sides of the heritage”.
