This research deals with spatial analysis (GIS), virtual reality (VR) and Digital mapping in order to investigate specific archaeological sites in Israel and approach the encounter between Roman Paganism and Judaism, and the rise of Christianity in the East during Late Antiquity. The analysis of material production associated with the respective contexts of occupation combined with spatial distribution of these social movements and the network analysis will allow one creating a digital map (in Portuguese) of Roman-Byzantine periods focusing on synagogues and churches. This also means more access to World archaeological Heritage in Brazil through the digital - once most Brazilians doesn't master English or other languages. The theoretical interests including spatial analysis, global heritage, socio-politics, cultural identities, and materiality which are framed within a broad discussion about Digital Humanities and Archaeology.
