2012 July : ‘Archaeology for All’
This 3 day summer course was organized by the Archaeology department of the University of the Algarve in Faro. It was attended by around 25 members of the AAA and a number of students from the University.
The subjects covered were Zooarchaeology, Recent trends in human evolution, the Côa Valley rock art, Palaeogenetics and Neolithic DNA research and the Roman fish products industry.
All those who attended found the course highly instructive and enjoyable. A similar event is being planned for 2013. A website has been set up for information about the topics covered (www.fchs.ualg.pt/a4a) and includes further research information.
