What secrets are hidden in the epigraphic collections preserved in different archaeological sites and museums in ancient Lusitania (Portugal), Hispania (Spain), Gaul (France) and Rome? In a documentary series that will premiere next Wednesday, 15 June, the School of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Navarra proposes a journey through time via Latin inscriptions, a fundamental means of communication in the Roman world and a sign of identity of the globalisation that this culture entailed.

The screening of the four documentaries that make up the series will take place at 19:00 at the Museum of the University of Navarra. The event, free of charge attendance, will also feature speeches by Javier Andreu, coordinator of project and director of Diploma in Archaeology at the academic centre; Ane Urrizburu from Pamplona, student of History and Archaeology and Journalism and protagonist of the audiovisual; and Quim Torrents, director of Clau Creative Services S.L, the business in charge of its production and direction.

Together with experts from the universities of Coimbra (Portugal), Bordeaux (France), La Sapienza (Italy) and the National Roman Museum, Urrizburu will visit cities such as civitas Igaeditanorum (Idanha a Velha), Burdigala (Bordeaux), Rome, Santa Cruz de Eslava (Navarre) or Los Bañales de Uncastillo (Zaragoza) and will reveal the secrets hidden in their repertoires of inscriptions.

This audiovisual is one of the results of the project "Valete vos Viatores: a journey through the Roman Empire through the inscriptions" that the School of Philosophy and Letters launched at the beginning of 2021, at partnership with seven other institutions, thanks to the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. In the framework of project, a video game created and managed by the Trahelium studio will soon be released, and a final publication will be published that will bring together the experience in the application of the Humanities Digital to the study of Roman inscriptions and the transfer to society of their main values.
