Abstract(s)Bouça da Cova da Moura is the local place-name attributed to a stretch of a plateau overlooking the Leça valley. Here, Neolithic burial mounds share their landscape setting with scatters of archaeological materials that include Bell Beaker fragments, idols and metalwork. Since these are mostly surface findings, their contexts have not yet been accurately determined. Another significant feature is the presence of prehistoric rock carvings. The plateau may thus be considered a public space, conceptually and physically built over time. Its significance and meanings were certainly created and transmitted through practices of memory construction which are representative of cultural identity and social cohesion.
Le site de Bouça da Cova da Moura se trouve sur un plateau faisant face au Rio Leça. On y a identifié des tertres funéraires du Néolithique, auxquels sont associés des zones de concentration d’artefacts, incluant céramiques campaniformes, idoles et mobilier métallique. S’agissant de mobilier de surface, le contexte de ces différentes concentrations n’a pas été déterminé avec attention. Un autre fait significatif est l’apparition de gravures rupestres préhistoriques. On peut considérer le plateau comme un espace publique, qui s’est bâti physiquement et conceptuellement au cours des temps. Son importance et sa signification ont certainement été créées et transmises à travers un certain nombre de pratiques de construction mémorielle, représentatives de l’identité culturelle et de la cohésion sociale.
