Campo History workshops get under way

The 11th edition of the Jornadas de Historia del Campo de Gibraltar, organized by the Instituto de Estudios Campogibraltareños, got under way this afternoon at the Rena Sofía Cultural Centre. After various introductory addresses, the inaugural lecture came from Jimena's Official Chronicler, José Regueira Ramos, whose subject was the maritime connection between his native Galicia and Andalucía, particularly with the Campo de Gibraltar. See the whole programme here; a fascinatingly wide coverage of the area's history.
