CULTURAL INTERACTIONS AND CHANGING LANDSCAPES IN EUROPE
The symposium had as theme the problematic of the processes of contact between cultures in the transition of the Age, in Europe. The period between the II century BC and the II century AD was characterised by interesting and complex historical and cultural dynamics throughout Europe, coinciding with the territorial formation and cultural consolidation of the Roman Empire.
The identity developed, represents the contact process through a symbol that combines the Roman and Castreja 'swastikas' in a 'golden', reference to gold mining, combined with the brown burel. The oldest known fabric in Portugal and believed to have a Castreja origin.
Identity and communication of the international symposium "Cultural Interactions and Changing Landscapes in Europe - 2nd century BC / 2nd. D.C" and of the exhibition "Iron Age Hillforts of Boticas", held in parallel to the symposium.
