Tomorrow, December 14, Villa Romana La Olmeda, located in Pedrosa de la Vega (Palencia), will inaugurate the exhibition “Fémina. Being a woman in Rome », offering a journey on the role that women played in that civilization both in legal form and in daily life, in beauty or in mythology.

The sample consists of twelve panels dedicated to various topics such as those mentioned above, offering the visitor a knowledge arising directly from the mosaics and grave goods found in the Villa Romana La Olmeda. In addition, the exhibition will feature all the objects found in the area and reproductions that were obtained through the data obtained and that are exhibited in Rome, Pompeii and Herculaneum.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
