Abstract

Located in a context that, both from a geographical as a historical
perspective, situates it in between the long-lived sambaqui (shellmound)
and the latecoming Southern Je cultures, Galheta IV is a funerary site bearing
characteristics from both cultures, thus highlighting the fluidity of the contact
between them. If, in one hand, it brings peculiar elements related to the Je,
it also gets itself harmonically inserted in a landscape long dominated by the
presence of the sambaquis.
