Portugal, 1001 Sights: An Archaeological and Historical Guide is for the traveller/reader who wants to learn more about Portugal in its historical context. Use it as a field manual to see all you can of the ancient heritage and as a handy reference if you cannot visit the sites but wish to know more of what Portugal has to offer than can be found in other travel books. This unique archaeological and historical guidebook introduces the reader and the traveller to the foundations of the modern state from the earliest period down to mediaeval times and includes maps and photographs. Historical sites are identified, described and located in relation to their historical period and guides are provided to their in situ remains. Travel with the authors to visit Paleolithic rupestrian paintings, ancient Neolithic, Chalcolithic and Bronze Age fortified villages, tombs (dolmens, tholos, cists), Celtic (Iron Age) settlements or castros, Roman towns, villas and necropoli, Paleo-Christian churches and cemeteries, and Moslem castles.
