Many cultures have crossed the narrow Straits of Gibraltar separating Western Europe and Northern Africa. Much of Spain's art, music and even food still reflect influences from North Africa and beyond. Its architecture often bears unmistakable characteristics of Islam. Moreover, influences from the early Roman Empire and the ancient Teutonic Goths are also abundant throughout Spain even today. In this two-part NHK documentary, we explore some of the 38 World Heritage Sites on the Iberian Peninsula, and examine the rich mixture of cultures and civilizations that created them.

Spanish Colonial Fortifications in North America 1565-1822 (Osprey Fortress 94)
Osprey Publishing | 2010 | ISBN-10: 1846035074 | ISBN-13: 978 1846035074 | English | 68 Pages | PDF | 60,3 MB

To maintain its imperial power in America, Spain built fortifications across the width of the continent. These outposts were established along Spanish borders from the late sixteenth century onwards to defend its interests against rival European powers and to suppress uprisings of the Native Americans and local population. By the eighteenth century, Spain's defenses spread from the northern area of the Gulf of Mexico through to California. Some of these imperial fortifications, such as the Alamo, played key roles in conflicts including the American Revolution and the Texan War of Independence. This book provides a cogent analysis of Spain's defensive network at the height of the country's imperial strength on the American continent.
Going Over: The Mesolithis-Neolithic Transition in North West Europe (Proceedings of the British Academy) Repost

Going Over: The Mesolithis-Neolithic Transition in North West Europe (Proceedings of the British Academy)
Alasdair Whittle, Vicki Cummings | Oxford University Press, USA | 2008-01-10 | ISBN: 019726414X | 648 pages | PDF | 42,1 MB

The processes involved in the transformation of society from Mesolithic hunter-gatherers to Neolithic farmers were complex. They involved changes not only in subsistence but also in how people thought about themselves and their worlds, from their pasts to their animals. Two sets of protagonists have often been lined up in the long-running debates about these processes: on the one hand incoming farmers and on the other indigenous hunter-gatherers. Both have found advocates as the dominant force in the transitions to a new way of life. North-west Europe presents a very rich data set for this fundamental change, and recent research has both extended and deepened our knowledge of regional sequences, from the sixth to the fourth millennia cal BC. One of the most striking results is the evident diversity from northern Spain to southern Scandinavia. No one region is quite like another; hunter-gatherers and early farmers alike were also varied and the old labels of Mesolithic and Neolithic are increasingly inadequate to capture the diversity of human agency and belief.Surveys of the most recent evidence presented here also strongly suggest a diversity of transformations. Some cases of colonisation on the one hand, and indigenous adoption on the other, can still be argued but many situations now seem to involve complex fusions and mixtures. This wide-ranging set of papers by leading specialists offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of this fundamental transition.Further keywords: archaeology, prehistory
Europe or Africa?: A Contemporary Study of the Spanish North African Enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla

Europe or Africa?: A Contemporary Study of the Spanish North African Enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla
Liverpool University Press | 2001-02-01 | ISBN: 0853239959 | 208 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Ceuta and Melilla are two "enclaves" on the northern coast of Africa that have been Spanish for centuries but that are claimed by the Kingdom of Morocco. As an integral part of Spain the towns have also been part of the territory of the European Union since 1986. Their unique situation has created considerable tension in the relationship (both political and economic) between Spain and Morocco. As well as looking at this relationship, the book explainshowtheanomalous situation of the enclaves impinges on issues such as immigration from North and sub-Saharan Africa into the EU, defense, trade and the Spanish political scene in general.
