Abstract

Paço dos Lobos da Gama is a seventeenth-century manor house, built by the Lobos da Gama family. It’s located in the city center of Évora in Rua Serpa Pinto. In 2008 the area was subjected to a rescue archaeological excavation, which continued during the following year. The interventions focused mainly on the backyard behind the property. The area 6 revealed an important set of archaeological remains dated from the 1st to 2nd centuries AD until the end of the Modern times, with special emphasis on the Islamic period. The plants macro remains, which are main subjects of this study, come exclusively from Islamic contexts. The archaeological contexts investigated, except for one unit, belong to negative structures. Among all, the septic tank was particularly rich in mineralized seeds and fruits, mostly belonging to fruit trees/shrubs. This study is intended to characterize the use and consumption of plant foods by the Islamic community living in the area. It also seeks to better understand the structural contexts in which the samples were collected. The aspects related to the exploitation of the wood resources, as well as those of the site, are also discussed. The study is still ongoing, and only some preliminary results are presented here
