"Border towns".


Some Spanish towns include the notation "de la Frontera" in their names. Jerez, Arcos, Morón, Vejer .... This detail indicates that at some point in their history they were located in lands adjacent to the Muslims, that is, in lands of danger. 

Over the centuries, other peoples have found themselves in similar situations: the native Americans who moved to the West before the advance of the Europeans; the Mongols, always lurking on the borders of the Chinese kingdoms; the Huns with respect to the Byzantine Empire; or the clans that the Romans called "barbarians", who were stopped by the Roman legions on the borders of the Empire.... 

All these populations were driven by various circumstances to live in frontier lands. Insecure, inhospitable lands, exposed to all kinds of dangers class . In the V edition of the competition Historia Play we invite students and their teachers to investigate about these nuclei of resistance and to discover the risks they faced.
