The research specialties led by Professor Dr. Sergi Grau covers complex studies and research in history, philosophy, archaeology, anthropology, archaeoastronomy, ancient architecture and science in early cultures. The doctor Grau is supported by Andres Adasme, Angela De Dalmau, Barbara Padial and Marta Pi among other specialists.
In Archaeology makes all kinds of interventions with latest generation techniques that do not directly affect the heritage remains (remote sensing and non-erosive techniques).
A correct valuation of the archaeological remains makes that its potential presence does not suppose a difficulty for the correct development of the projects. We do development plans in sensitive areas and comprehensive plans of action in Historical - Archaeological and Natural Sites. W orks : Anastylosis • Surveys • Restoration • Conservation • Musealization • Excavations
We combine archaeological history, science and technology for the recovery, study, classification and dating of submerged heritage.
U nderwater archaeology is often complementary to archaeological research on terrestrial sites because the two are often linked by many and various elements including geographic, social, political, economic and other considerations. As a result, a study of an archaeological landscape can involve a multidisciplinary approach requiring the inclusion of many specialists from a variety of disciplines including prehistory, historical archaeology, maritime archaeology, and anthropology
Anthropology is the scientific study of humanity, concerned with human behavior, human biology, cultures, societies, and linguistics, in both the present and past, including past human species. Our research department combines anthropological studies with other scientific disciplines such as history and archaeology.
Our work in archeoastronomy serve as our methodology and analysis of astronomy and archeology tools, analyzing the archaeological and historical evidence of the different human cultures in search of reconstructing the old astronomies and its diverse cultural aspects.
I n practice we seek to establish through field measurements the astronomical orientation of an archaeological structure. Likewise, calendars, cosmologies and cosmogonies, cosmological symbols and all evidence of cultural activity related to astronomy are studied.
A pioneer in the study of archeoastronomy, Andres Adasme shares his fascination for a culture where humanity and nature still live in harmony, and describes what Peru can teach us about the interconnectedness of everything
M achu Picchu deserves a separate discourse: the entire citadel, if observed with the eye of the archaeoastronomer, is a mine of information and ancient wisdom, and the truth is that we are only beginning to dig the surface. What is certain, is that many of the enigmas that surround this extraordinary site find very clear explanations if looked at from this perspective
The most iconic Classical constructs are the large stone temples that were built on a foundation of symmetry and order. As such, there is a longstanding tradition of architects looking back at this architectural history and reviving the values and ideals of the ancient world. From the Great Pyramids to lost civilizations in Europe, Africa, Asia, America and Oceania we leave no stone unturned in this epic exploration into the hidden history of ancient structures and sacred sites.
