This project is the unfolding and deepening of a theme presented in a FAPESP financed program of Master, namely, Roman mining landscape (as part of the Laboratory for Roman Provincial Archaeology LARP-MAE/USP projects, financed by FAPESP). The central goal is to create the three-dimensional reconstruction-simulation of Vipasca (Aljustrel, Portugal) landscape from its archaeological remains. Based on the classic bibliographic sources, cartography and fieldwork we will look for resources which enlighten the potential digital reconstruction of ancient Vipasca landscape. For that, use will be made of geotechnologies and the theory and methodology pertaining to the Cyber-Archaeology in order to reconstruct and interactively simulate the landscape region. (AU)
