Hello again everyone,

This time I am bringing you the explanation of what sounded like gunshots echoing around our hillsides and valleys. These detonations can be heard most weekends throughout the summer coming from one village or another. In our case they heralded the feast of our local saint.

I trust you will enjoy reading about our village parade. 

High days and holidays in Calheiros


Added to this is a piece about the pre-history of the Minho. Not far from Braga is a very fine example of an Iron Age hill settlement. There cannot be much money for archaeology in Portugal and as a result Briteiros is somewhat overgrown with grasses, wild flowers and stonecrop. Personally I find this more attractive than our super-clean ancient sites in the UK. The weathering and undergrowth give the impression that we have not interfered too much in the lost lives of the ancient people. They lend character to a place which will never have been particularly sanitary. Others I know will disagree.

Read, look and see what you think. I am not an archaeologist – not even an amateur one – but I have ventured to interpolate my own thoughts and impressions.

If you think me completely wrong, do feel free to write in and criticise.

Standing on the shoulders of giants


Until next time and new stories.

Best wishes
