The Spanish Indiana Jones in North Africa 1900-1948
The Spanish Pioneer archaeologists in Morocco in the Golden Age of Archaeology
A story of war, kidnappings, Berber Bandoleros, a Spanish Indiana Jones… The lecture is about the Spanish archaeologists and historians who developed their research in North Morocco at the time of what in Spain is called the "African War" (1909-1927), when Spain was trying to establish her Protectorate in the Northern part of Morocco in accordance with the results (and the mandate) of the International Treaties signed in the Conference of Algeciras (1906); these scholars worked in the field under war conditions, for instance in the Tetouan area, at the Roman site of Tamuda, the war front between 1919 and 1925, where César Montalbán was working in 1919, 1920 and 1921 until the battle situation made the archaeological research stop not to be retaken until 1940.
It is also the period of WW II, when some of our Spanish archeologists in Morocco even had some contacts with the Allies through the American Consolate in Tangier: while the world was struggling in war, some of these heroes of Archaeology and History, such as Pelayo Quintero, were developing their research in several sites as Lixus, Alcazarseguer or Tamuda.
