Exhibitions are an important tool of comunication and dissemination of the scientific studies carried out within the framework of the MEMOLA project. They allows us to connect with local communities, scientists and people interested in the topic to let them know different aspects of cultural landscapes.

At the same time they are also a tool for citizens engagement, since we involve local communities in the provision of material and in some case also in organisation and design decision-making.



The MEMOLA project carry out a wide ethnographic study within the cultural landscapes with aim to analize, understand and register the traditional strategies used by the local communities in order to manage their own agrosystems, especially the way in which they use the natural resources through ancient knowledges, the social organization and the common law that regulate the communal use of the resources, or the resilience capacity that these socio-ecological systems show to face with threat that affect their stability.



We conceive archaeological activity in a complex and comprehensive way. In general we can say that the MEMOLA project falls within the Landscape Archaeology, seen as the result of a coevolutionary process and a synthesis of social relations. The landscape is, in this view, a historical product and as such, part of the material culture of the societies that have built it over time.
