This paper discusses the meaning of advertisement in the contemporary society and its relationship to the historical awareness of the people, through history learning. It also argues that advertisements are a precious document for History research and teaching. An illustration of this is an advertisement recurring to a historical theme (the Independence of Brazil) during the "Brazilian Economical Miracle" (1969-1973)
Keywords : Advertisement; Historical awareness; History learning; Commemorations of the independence of Brazil.
