Date: Wednesday 11th April 2018 18:00 (note change of date and time due to public holiday in Moraira!)

Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)

Subject: History of Spain Part 1: Ice age to the Romans

Lecturer: Cheda Panajotovic

 

Man flourished on the Iberian Peninsula throughout the last Ice Age but hardly anywhere else in Europe. There is ample evidence of man’s fist settlements in the ‘Sima Des Huesos’ (The Pit Of Bones), the world’s greatest known deposit of fossilised remains of Homo Heilderbergensis’ – c.300,000 BC.

This talk starts from the earliest of times and covers the various invasions where each of the invading peoples settled, wanting an easier life in a more hospitable climate.

During the presentation we shall try to answer the question of ‘What Did The Roman’s Do For Us’ and then explain as to why the Romans decided one day to just lift up their sticks and rush back to defend Rome, leaving España open to peoples new to conquer!
