THE BATTLE OF ALARCOS (1195): MUSEALIZATION OF A MEDIEVAL BATTLEFIELD (CASA RESEARCH COLLOQUIUM).

The medieval battle of Alarcos (1195) was the last great victory of Moslem against Christian troops in Spain. Having received information that the Almohad caliph Yaqub al-Mansur was gravely ill in Marrakesh, King Alphonso VIII of Castile decided to attack the Almohad possessions in Spain. Spanish and Moorish troops clashed at the castle of Alarcos, which marked the southernmost extension of Alphonso's realm. The battle ended in a decisive, but ultimately short-lived victory for the Moors. Dr. Ramírez Galán will show how the battle field can be preserved and reconstructed so that modern visitors can walk through the site and experience the battle in its different stages.
