AAA at the University of Algarve - Student grants presentations


AAA student grant presentations
A day at the University of Algarve!

Last 25th May, Núcleo de Alunos de Arqueologia e Paleoecologia (NAP) had the pleasure to recieve Archaeological Association of Algarve (AAA) members at the University of Algarve. In the morning we had the opportunity to assist the presentations of the students awarded with grants last year.




Patrícia Monteiro shared with us her work about Bucket flotation within EcoPLis project, which as been present in EAA Annual Meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania, last September. 

The work of Rute Branco was presented by our colleague Roxane Matias, about the exploitation of malacofauna in Medieval Islamic period in Tejo do Praio site, Algarve. This work was also presented in EAA Annual Meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania. 


Cátia Teixeira told us about her work on using GIS techniques to assess the organization of the Roman city of Ossonoba, presented also in CAA Conference in Oslo, Norway. Besides the presentations, questions have been asked about the worked developed by the students and also an interesting discussion about archaeological practice in Portugal. 



After lunch, AAA attend a Lithics workshop, give by Dr. Telmo Pereira in ICArEHB laboratory. Dr. Telmo Pereira told us all about raw materials with practical exercices using lithic materials, and Eduardo Paixão and David Nora gave us an inlight on lithic technology. 







It was an amazing day that reflected this kind collaboration between NAP and AAA. As was stated during the presentations, the support given to the students is very important, not only because provides a crucial experience on research and academic CV, but also provides the opportunity to learn from other investigators, contact with other realities. Plus, the first steps on investigation are the harder ones, and this support on early stages of our careers means a lot on the growth of young archaeology researchers. NAP is extremely grateful to AAA for providing this opportunity for the students!
We look foward for the next year, as several students are already submiting their applications for AAA student grants 2017!
