This project integrates two investigation perspectives around a same theme. The archaeological sites known as fluvial sambaquis in the basin of the river Ribeira de Iguape, south of the State of São Paulo. On a side, the archaeological interest in the chronology and in the structural and cultural characteristics peculiar of these sites relatively rare and dispersed in the valley of the Ribeira, with emphasis in the processes of formation of the archaeological registre, taphonomy, faunal and bioanthropological analyses. On other hand, the geophysical focus in the development of a methodology of research - using magnetometrics, gama-spectrometrics and of georadar methods, focused to the maping, investigation and elucidation of archaeological complex contexts without intensive interventions in the field.
