The Pepper Empire After the disaster at Alcácer Quibir in 1578, Portugal became a part of the Spanish Empire, and although Filipe I of Portugal (Felipe II of Spain) promised to safeguard Portuguese interests, the Spanish king lived in Spain and attended first to Spanish affairs. When Portugal was faced in eastern waters with competition from the Dutch and the English, they attempted to defend their Empire at first militarily, and then by creating their own East India Company, in line with their English and Dutch opponents. Why did that company fail, and why were the Portuguese unable to withstand the pressure of competition from the northern European rivals? In this talk, Peter Booker discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the Portuguese Empire in the east, and give reasons why their enemies from the north were able to overcome them. The talks will take place on Tuesday June 25th at 6pm (Lagoa Library) and Friday June 28th at 11am (Tavira Library).

LOULÉ VELHO (QUARTEIRA)

Archaeology of memory at a Roman site

On Tuesday June 4th, the Algarve Archaeological Association (AAA) will present two lectures, in English, by Catarina Viegas and Rui de Almeida. The first lecture will be at 2.30pm at the Museu do Traje, São Bras, the second lecture at 6pm at the Convento de São José, Lagoa. Catarina Viegas and Rui de Almeida, from the University of Lisbon, will be presenting what is known about the site of Loulé Velho (adjacent to Praia do Trafal, Quarteira) in the framework of the Roman economy from the 1st to the 6th century AD. The LORIVAI Project, which began in July 2018, has as its main objective the study of the Roman site of Loulé Velho. In this presentation, Catarina Viegas and Rui de Almeida will focus on the available knowledge about the site and its investigation, teasing out an understanding of the role of Loulé Velho in the Roman economy. An important part of the project is the collaboration and participation of the local community. Non-members are welcome to attend AAA lectures for a €5 admission fee, with all money raised by the AAA being used for archaeological grants and speakers. Please check the website or facebook page for any last minute changes.
