Abstract: The municipalities of Estremoz, Borba, and Vila Viçosa, in the Portuguese region of Alentejo, contain the most important reserve of high-quality marble in Portugal. Its exploration began in the Roman period, creating an intense material culture (civilian, religious, and public work), but also a specific way of working. The study of its history and heritage began in 2012 with a multidisciplinary long-term investigation with the purpose of understanding its evolution, players, landscape changes, and the importance of its elements as distinctive factors acting on the cultural level. We aim to value the work culture in this industry and spread its memory among the community, through the recognition of the investments, the workers, their social bonds and work conditions, tools, and technological modernization.
