The archaeological evidence tels us
that Conimbriga was inhabited, at least,
between the IX century B.C. and VII-VIII a.D.
When the Romans arrived, in the second
half of the I st century B.C.,
Conimbriga was a florescent village.
Thanks to the peace established in Lusitania
a quick romanisation of the indigenous
population was took place and Conimbriga became
a prosperous town.
Following the deep
political and administrative crisis
of the Empire, Conimbriga suffered
the consequences of the barbaric
invasions. In 465 and in 468 Suabii captured
and plundered partially the town ,
abandoned by part of its population.
Conimbriga nowadays is an area
designated as national monument,
defined by ordnance in 1910.
