0226 - Post Scriptum – A last minute visit

After the end of this year campaign and at his request, António Guterres, presently Secretary General of United Nations Organization, and family visited Perdigões enclosure, where they took notice of the main aspects of the Perdigões Research Program and of the site’s characteristics and its significant relation to the megalithic landscape of Reguengos de Monsaraz.



At the Museum, the process of discovery and the results of the first years of research were appreciated.


And the visit to the deposit, where José Roquette joined the rest of the group, allowed the contact with the discoveries of the last years of research, not yet expressed at the museum, and the explanations of Ricardo Godinho, that is studying the cremated human remains there.




Away from the cameras, a genuine interest in History and cultural heritage. A good reason to me for a quick leap to Perdigões.
