Sabías que o taboleiro do xogo da oca interprétase como unha guía simbólica e encriptada das etapas do Camiño de Santiago, feito polos cabaleiros Templarios no s. XII #Galicia #BoaNoite 👇🏼 Image
O Camiño Francés non era un lugar seguro na Idade Media e a mision dos Cabaleiros templarios era protexer ós peregrinos na súa viaxe. Por isto, deseñarían un mapa criptográfico no que as 63 casas do taboleiro corresponderían a puntos determinados do Camiño de Santiago 👇🏼
Cada casa do taboleiro faría referencia a emblemas e sinais que os Mestres Construtores terían colocado en lugares relevantes do Camiño. Por exemplo, a primeira ponte do taboleiro podería corresponder coa localidade de Puente la Reina (Navarra). 👇🏼

The Castro Lupario hillfort (Rois,#Galicia) has alway captivated the attention of writers and scholars. It is located very close to Santiago de Compostela, had some intriguing findings, uncommon features and a strong legend on a powerful queen.
#HillfortsWednesday Foto: Concello de Rois
At least since the 16th century, travellers have visited the ruins, looking for the legend. The Castro Lupario was the seat of the Raíña Lupa, the She-Wolf Queen, sovereign of these lands when the corpse of Saint James arrived from Palestine in a stone boat.
#HillfortsWednesday Image
The queen built a pagan temple to which crowds flocked. The Apostle's disciples asked the queen to bury him there. This pagan seat of power was so relevant for Saint James' myth that in 1610 Mauro Castellá depicted the hillfort in the centre of the territory.

Sabías que a primeira camioneira de España era galega. Celia Rivas (Lugar de Calcova, Fisterra) está recoñecida como a primeira muller camioneira de España. É probablemente tamén a primeira muller europea que participou nun conflito bélico como transportista. #Galicia 👇🏼
Empresaria de exito co-fundadora xunto ás súas irmás da empresa Fillos de Joaquín Rivas, dedicada á comercialización de peixe e marisco.👇🏼
En 2018, a escritora Anaír Rodríguez e a ilustradora Nuria Díaz incluírona no seu libro "Pioneiras - Galegas que abriron camiño" como unha das doce mulleres na historia de Galicia con maior transcendencia na eliminación de barreiras para as mulleres 👇🏼

1El desastroso “contrato del siglo” de la industria española (#hilo)

Hace unos días saltó la noticia, una de tantas, en la cual se comentaba que #Egipto estaba negociando con #Navantia la adquisición de buques anfibios y también de patrulleros...…

The massacres of #Poles in #Volhynia and Eastern #Galicia were carried out in German-occupied Poland by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (#UPA Stepan Bandera), with the support of parts of the local Ukrainian population against the Polish minority in Volhynia, Eastern Galicia,
parts of Polesia and Lublin region from 1943 to 1945. The peak of the massacres took place in July and August 1943. Most of the victims were women and children. Many of the Polish victims regardless of age or gender were tortured before being killed;
some of the methods included rape, dismemberment or immolation, among others. The UPA's actions resulted in between 50,000 and 100,000 deaths.

The Montes Claros hillfort (A Laracha, #Galicia) stands out in the south of the Artabri people lands. First archaeologic insights provided recently an Iron Age chronology and a probably role as a trade hub. 👇
#HillfortsWednesday Image
...which is quite funny. If we turn back the camera, you will see the closeness of the Montes Claros hillfort with the huge logistics facility of the biggest fast fashion group in the world, Inditex. Headquarters of the company are quite close too.
#HillfortsWednesday Image
At the heart of the fort you will find a Pegada do Xentil ('the footprint of the Pagan'). It is the mark left by the horse of a pagan knight when both jumped over the hills.
As in other Atlantic areas, links with power and lordship were proposed.

The San Millán hillfort (Cualedro, #Galicia) preserves, almost intact, massive dry stone ramparts, gates and other features. It was inhabited from V-IV BC up to a Late Roman occupation. But there's many questions still open there. 👇
For example, close to a probably South gate there is one of the best preserved chevaux de frise defense I have ever seen. Many of the stones still stands up, making it hard your walk. You can see a clear path in the middle to allow you to reach the gate.

The impressive wall was carefully built around the III BC., but there is evidence of a older, cyclopean rampart (in red), almost totally dismantled. According to @Xeitura excavators, it have links with another close hillfort, totally refurbished in the III BC.

This is the Castro Cercio hillfort (Monterroso, #Galicia). For me, one of the most challenging and intriguing Iron Age sites of inland Galicia. A possible seat of power reinforced with a symbolic use of geology.

Let's take a look!

#HillfortsWednesday Image
The Cercio hillfort is just at the beginning of a longitudinal outcrop of quartzites, running all along the hills for several km. In a sunny day, it's really difficult for your eyes moving along the outcrop. It shines so bright that it blinds you.

In the nearby town of Lugo (former Roman Lucus Augusti) a Ist AD tombstone was found, remembering the prince Vecius son of Veroblius.
He died at his 60s, and was chief of the Castellum Circine, from the Copori people. Epigraphy and the current placename suggest nice links. Image

1/ #Ukrainian Nationalist Volunteers Committing 'ISIS-Style' War Crimes: Amnesty International

Right-wing Ukrainian ultra nationalists are committing war crimes in rebel-held territories of Eastern #Ukraine, evidence of militias beheading their victims.…
2/ Armed volunteers who refer to themselves as the Aidar battalion "have been involved in widespread abuses, including abductions, unlawful detention, ill-treatment, theft, extortion, and possible executions", Amnesty said.
3/ Kiev-based Pravilnoe TV reported that it had spoken with one of the mothers who confirmed her son was a rebel, captured during fighting in Donetsk.

She said she had received her son's head in a wooden box in the post, blaming nationalist volunteers for her son's death.

Bueno, no sé si os acordáis que hace unos días empecé un hilo sobre #Mujeres precursoras del feminismo. Retomo el hilo y coloco lo que ya escribí también para poder seguir mejor el hilo. Me disculpo de antemano porque va a ser un hilo largo, pero el tema no merece menos. Dentro🧵
Hoy toca hablar un poquito de pioneras del feminismo y de mujeres que, a día de hoy, siguen luchando por los derechos de nosotras, las #Mujeres. Pero, me vais a permitir que barra un poquito para casa y que hable solo de mujeres #Gallegas que han roto barreras. ⬇️
Durante el siglo XIX, en Galicia, fueron no pocas las mujeres que se atrevieron a alzar la voz por las injusticias que, como #Mujeres, sufrían en sus carnes. He de aclarar primero que sus palabras hay que ponerlas en contexto y que todas ellas son carne del momento en que viven⬇️

Arranca mi fiesta favorita: perversa, gamberra y ancestral.
Y eso merece un homenaje en forma de viaje por los carnavales más bizarros -y no tan conocidos-de #Galicia: terroríficos, con aires de Midsommar, inquietantes y muy, muy raros.

Empieza el #EntroidoBizarro!👹
Lo de A Xironda, #Ourense, no es de este mundo. Por si fuera poca impresión encontrarte con 'mázcaras' como esas al cruzar cualquier esquina, van y levantan este wicker man con atributos que desafían a la gravedad. Su aparición marca el inicio deI #EntroidoBizarro
La última noche de #Carnaval, desmontan al dios pagano y entre todo el pueblo lo llevan a hombros hasta la plaza. Allí, con mucho cachondeo, subastan su miembro descomunal y prenden fuego al cuerpo de paja.
Así termina en A Xironda un #EntroidoBizarro de lo más horror folk.

During the night of the 7th of September, the local community of Castelo (Taboada, #Galicia) performs an exciting and breathtaking ritual in their charming and univallate hillfort of Castro do Castelo.
#HillfortsWednesday Image
In the previous days, families collect the 'agucios' to build the 'fachas':(8-9 mts high torches). The fachas are placed all around the circular rampart ot the hillfort.

#HillfortsWednesday ImageImageImageImage
When all the fachas are placed in the rampart, the view of the hillfort from the village is stunning and thrilling. Something is going to happen.
But before, there is a huge community feast, all together, young and old.

Until midnight...

Just one word: BEAUTY.
The winter forest still hides most of the Roman time houses in the A Cibdá de Armea hillfort (Allariz, #Galicia).
But this site also hides an intriguing story on people dealing with their ancestral identity during Roman rule.
👇👇👇 Image
Archaeologist excavated recently in the Atalaia (trans, 'the Watchtower') area, just in the lower terraces of the hillfort. A lot of spectacular findings were found there during the 1950's digs.
#HillfortsWednesday Image
They found an extremely well preserved neighbourhood of a Roman town dated between I and III centuries AD. Roads, portici, and even the oldest wine cellar in the whole Gallaecia.

Antonio de Torquemada, o primeiro "xornalista do misterio" de España, recolleu na súa obra "Jardín de Flores Curiosas" (1570) un caso de licantropía en #Galicia. Un lobo da xente tres séculos antes do famoso Manuel Blanco Romasanta.

Segue no fío👇👇👇 Image
“En el reino de Galicia se halló un hombre el cual andaba por los montes escondido, y de allí se salía a los caminos cubierto de un pellejo de lobo, y si hallaba algunos mozos pequeños desmandados, matábalos y hartábase de comer en ellos; y era tanto el daño que hacía... Image
que los de la tierra procuraron quitar aquella bestia del mundo.Y prendiéronle, y viendo que era un hombre le pusieron en una cárcel y le atormentaron, y todo lo que decía parecían disparates.Hartábase de comer carne cruda y, en fin, murió antes de que se hiciese justicia de él.” Image

First #HillfortsWednesday of the year! Let's celebrate it with the hillfort of A Ourela (Palas de Rei, #Galicia), a remarkable Iron Age site with still impressive ramparts and some intriguing features, maybe linked with some kind of perfomative architecture. 👇
The outer enclosure partially takes advantage of the hill, but it is strange. The rampart was not built over the edge of the hill. It prefers to retreat back and build a ditch, losing natural advantage. Why? Perhaps it wants to be seen more from the south?
And other feature is mind-blowing.
As you can see, all in A Ourela ramparts is about the gates. They are massive. But a sort of weird passage goes all down the slope from them. It was damaged by farming, but some traces can still be seen. Such a performance!

Is some sense returning? The region of #galicia in #spain has been trying obsessively to implement vaccine certificate for restaurants and bars. The regional Supreme Court has thrown this out repeatedly.
In this thread I will detail the reasoning by the authorities. Come with...
On page 2 of the resolution, "the right to personal intimacy, as the measure would mean exhibiting personal health-related data, which is, by European legislature, protected information which requires more protection and confidentiality."
"Also the principle of non-discrimination could be affected, as the [...] measure would lead to a discriminate treatment of citizens depending on the [...] certificate. [...] vaccination is not mandatory"
