This project is the unfolding and deepening of a theme presented in a FAPESP financed program of scientific initiation carried on from october 2006 to june 2009, namely, mining.The central goal is to analyze the complexity present in the Roman mining landscape in the Hispanic territory, including Lusitania.Based on the classic bibliographic sources and its interpreters we will look for resources which enlighten the role of provincial mining exploration and its reflexes on the Roman Empire.For that, use will be made of the methodology pertaining to the Landscape Archaeology in order to examine three fundamental segments of mining: the extraction zone, the infrastructure and the man power necessary for that activity.
