Exciting talk planned for next AAA meeting

ROBERT H. BEWLEY, the English Heritage’s regional director for the South West is the speaker for the next Algarve Archaeology Association meeting, due to take place on April 4.

Robert has been involved in managing national research programmes covering the whole range of architectural and archaeological site types, from prehistory to the Cold War, utilising aerial surveys and delivering information to a wide variety of clients.

His research interests are in the understanding, conservation and presentation of cultural heritage. He formulated the research design and implemented the operation for one of the largest research projects currently being undertaken by English Heritage, the National Mapping Programme.

During his career, he has worked in various countries throughout Europe and the Middle East and directed projects on Offa’s Dyke, the Solway Plain, and co-directed a project in Jordan on Aerial Archaeology.  In 2000/2001, he co-organised the Culture 2000 funded-project, Conservation through Aerial Archaeology.

There will be two opportunities to hear his informative talk. The first will be at the Biblioteca Municipal, in Loulé at 2.30pm, then the talk is repeated again at 6.30pm in the Convento São José, Lagoa.

You do not have to be a member of the Association to enjoy these monthly talks. Non-members can attend too, at the price of just five euros, which goes towards the cost of the speaker. Call Maxine Srivastava on 917 267 948 for further information.
