In the 100th anniversary of the beginning of scientific research in the Castro de Monte Mozinho (MOZ), studied in a context of great interest in the knowledge of the Proto-Historical and Roman culture. This site well illustrates a village with a strong expression in the landscape, by scale and architecture, where the Roman civilization acted to gather dispersed populations from a perspective of peaceful domination. After the definitive abandonment as a settlement during the 5th century AD, Monte Mozinho falls into long forgetfulness until it is rediscovered and investigated from the beginning of the XXth century, and later with the collaboration of international researchers, and invaluable support of local populations and students.
This impetus require new approaches and interdisciplinary readings, in an attempt to adapt a ruin to the real needs of our contemporary - more demanding and avid of knowledge. It is therefore urgent return to MOZ and celebrate the multiculturalism, the peaceful living of different peoples, as happened here from the first century a.C., and reinforce the sense of belonging of the monument by the local community, its first defender, their involvement, as well as researchers and students. Equally priority will be the recovery of the primitive nature of its 20 ha, and the record of the experiences of the many who passed through it, returning the place to the collective memory of the community, as a space of identity and (re) intergenerational meeting.
