This three-days event, which has been organized thanks to the support of Montiel’s town council, will include guided visits to the sites recently credited as part of Spain’s Historical and Cultural Heritage. It will be also a unique opportunity to witness the results of the ongoing collaboration that since 2012 has brought local authorities, researchers and local stakeholders together in the Foundación Castillo de la Estrella. The Foundation’s goals include supporting archeological sites related to the area known as Campo de Montiel, as well as a program for preservation and dissemination of this cultural heritage both in academic outlets and to the benefit of the community at large. In particular, it is worth mentioning their commitment to socio-economic development of the area through workshops and internships in conservation and outreach programs.
Please, join us in the Spring 2019 at the Villa de Montiel and, meanwhile, stay tune for more info regarding the International Colloquium on the Battle of Montiel (1369-2019).
