The elastic energy dissipation coefficient and dynamic elasticity modulus were measured in the 3-4000 Hz frequency range by an inverted torsion pendulum and a vibrating reed technique on nanocrystalline aluminium samples obtained by mechanical attrition. The anelasticity spectra in the 300-700 K range on as-prepared samples with average grain size in the 20-40 nm range strongly depends on low temperature annealing treatments. A relaxational damping peak Pi at 460 K (3Hz) is observed in samples
