The mastering thesis proposes the raising of a Guarani indigenous history in a long duration to the central coast of Santa Catarina from a Guarani Archaeology of Place. For this, they are analyzed two ceramic collections from Santa Catarina Island (Florianópolis): the Travessão do Rio Vermelho (TRV) collection (excavated between 2013 and 2014 by Laboratório de Estudos Interdisciplinares em Arqueologia - LEIA/UFSC) and Lagoinha do Rio Tavares I (RT) collection (this one excavated between 1965 and 1966 by PhD Walter Fernando Piazza during PRONAPA). These collections are analyzed coordinating a technology and an archaeometry (x-ray fluorescence) perspectives, so that it was possible to emphasize the importance of coordinating different methods and the interdisciplinary in archaeology. The discussion and the objective are reached by collections\' and place\'s (archaeological sites\') analysis and by the intersection among archaeology, history, ethnology and ethnohistory. Then, it is verified that the technological and the x-ray fluoresce analysis were complementary to the discussion on ceramic\'s production processes (as paste\'s composition was elementary on this comprehension) as well as on possible vessel\'s uses. It was possible to reach production scales, to argue about a locus of food manipulation inside the collective life in the teko\'á and to argue about a locus related to the limits of the community associated to death on Guarani culture. Going through the particularities inside Guarani ceramic\'s structure, it was emphasized a clear defference between the analysed colections in micro (the archaeological material itself) and macro terms (the archaeological material and the place, the archaeological site).
