A piece of history


The data obtained from the five archaeological surveys undertaken at 35, Rua do Facho allowed to register contexts of social occupation/use, regarding five great moments/phases of occupation/abandonment of this space within a modern and contemporary timeframe.


Two contemporary structures were acknowledged as the implantation of inhabitation, occupation and patio use, as well as its ulterior abandonment and breakdown. The timeframe can be placed in between the end of the 18th century/beginning of the 20th century and its end.

The items

The items date from the modern epoch, with fragments pertaining to the 16th century (malegueira crockery and items with triangular flaps) as well as decorative porcelain that point out to the second half of the 17th century.


The ensemble suggests a context of domestic use, reinforced by the presence of common ceramic (kitchen ware and storage) and table crockery (porcelain).

Even though their typology is unknown, the archaeological niches uncovered in Óbidos by the archaeological digs, including ceramic of modern origin, can be framed within the modern epoch (despite displaying antique, medieval elements). This can be illustrated by the Facho


Ruins, where ceramic items of the same epoch have been registered, dating from centuries 15th/16th. These are most certainly connected to the Buildings 1 and 2 of the Pelourinho House (Direita Street), where even though medieval silos have been registered (centuries 12th/13th), the structures present a diachrony reflective of the 14th and 16th century.
