 Project objective

The proposed project (SHoW) investigates the roles that landscapes, skylines and astronomy played in past peoples' lives in order to determine the cultural relatedness between people along Europe´s Atlantic Façade. Specifically, it investigates the types of visual-scapes people chose for the erection of their megalithic monuments within and across regions, that clearly seem to have some kind of related megalithic tradition, but which is not yet understood. Focusing on the periods of intensive monument building in prehistoric Iberia (c. 4500-2500 B.C.) and Britain (3100-900 B.C.), innovative 3D technology, along with interdisciplinary approaches already brought to bear on past projects by the candidate, will assist in the reconstruction of past visual worlds of the megalith builders of western Galicia and Scotland. These, plus the development and use of new approaches in geospatial techniques, 3D technology, statistical approaches and database management are key for the determination of the roles that landscapes, skylines and astronomy played in past peoples' lives. By investigating the role of the natural world, this project upholds and extends UNESCO’s Astronomy and World Heritage Thematic Initiative, for the project recognises that the way people observed the land and the sky in the past is a repository for people’s perception of their world. Understanding these things opens the way for a new consideration of shared tangible and intangible values in the past. In this way, this MSCA candidate will produce insights into some of the most iconic representations of cultural remembrance in Europe, revealing whether the reasons behind erecting megaliths were the same for people in different regions of Europe´s Atlantic Façade, and if not, what the differences might have been, and why. Ultimately, SHoW will reveal the degree to which the people in these regions possessed shared worlds.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
