The Mação Prehistoric Park is effectively a field of experimentation of prehistoric technologies and traditional knowledge.
There, participants can experience productive processes of the past, namely linked to agriculture, cattle breeding, utensils manufacturing and construction of various structures.
This is even one of its points of great interest, the origins of agriculture and art because this is a subject in which Mação has a national importance, and because agriculture and land work are the identity bases of Mação.
The Park was created as a museological cultural project to promote the encounter between generations and to fight age-related discrimination and stigma, promoting active aging, autonomy, independence and social participation of older people, as an educational reference and pillar of social cohesion in the transformation of ancestral knowledge and traditions with younger people.
We recall that Andakatu is a character born in Mação who, dressed in the "clothes" of a Palaeolithic hunter or a Neolithic farmer, is the protagonist and leader of the workshops whose contents (speech and teaching materials) are based on the transformation of the landscape, technology, rock art, the transition from hunting and recollection to agro-pastoralism, social transformations, balance and sustainability of environmental resources
