Between the 17th and 19th of November, Mérida will host the II Congreso Internacional de Tarteso “Nuevas Fronteras” with which Inquiba is pleased to collaborate.
Organized by Tierra Creativa, this congress aims to explore the findings and expansion that the Tartessian civilization had in Extremadura, which is a key reference in the study and knowledge of Tartessus. It will also commemorate the opening of the Cancho Roano site in 2001, the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Aliseda treasure, as well as the recent designation of the Turuñuelo of Guareña as an Asset of Cultural Interest and whose excavation of its Tartessian remains will be resumed this year.
Given our commitment with the region, it was our duty to be part of this meeting. Firstly, because we are from Guareña, where “Casas de Turuñuelo”, one of the largest archeological sites of this culture, is located. Also because of the importance of sharing the historical value that Extremadura possesses and because of the economic and social repercussion this will have for our region, which is necessary given the post pandemic situation we are dealing with.
The congress will bring together world renowned speakers (researchers, professors and lecturers) and a large number of participants.
