Archaeological travels in Turkey

The Algarve Archaeological Association (AAA) will be presenting two lectures, in English, on Tuesday, November 8 by Peter and Sonja Schroeder. The first lecture will be at 2.30pm at the Museu do Trajo in São Brás, followed by another at 5.45pm at the Convento de São José in Lagoa.

Peter and Sonja Schroeder have combined their careers in film and opera with their long-term interest in history and archaeology. They met whilst filming the ‘Barber of Seville’ and their honeymoon was spent on ‘The Marriage of Figaro’.

They have lived and worked all over the world and made their first visit to Turkey in 1973 on a camping holiday; they have been back regularly ever since.

In this talk, they will take the audience on a journey through every era since prehistory and the rich heritage still there to be experienced.

Turkey has some of the Roman Empire’s most monumental and best preserved evidence inspiring an increased respect for them from Sonja and Peter.

Lunch in São Brás can be arranged in advance. Call Maxine on 917 267 948.
