Algarve Archaeological Association (AAA)

Following an approach from Claire Larson it has been agreed that the monthly meetings of the AAA will move from Loule and in future be held at the Museum in São Brás. These will normally be held on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 14:30 in the Museum (old) Gallery.

The next meeting, on 7th April, will be a talk, entitled Two and a Half Million Years of Stone Tools by Prof. Derek Roe and Dr. Sarah Milliken. For further information about this talk please click here.

The AAA was formed in 1983 by an international group of residents interested in Archaeology in the Algarve and was constituted as a non-profit making charitable institution for the promotion of archaeology in Portugal. In 2008, the AAA celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Its principle aims are –

  1. To encourage a wider appreciation of international archaeology and history with special emphasis on Portugal and the Algarve.
  2. To assist the Portuguese authorities, in any way acceptable to them, with archaeological projects and the preservation of ancient sites.

This relationship provides a great opportunity for Amigos members to attend fascinating lectures on the archaeological history of our area and beyond and we will carry details of all future AAA events in our regular news letter.
