The Naval Museum, in collaboration with Summer Courses of the University of the Basque Country, organizes the International Congress "Study and analysis of the Victoria nao’s technological context, in the period of the first world round", which will take place in Miramar Jauregia de San Sebastián on September 5th and 6th.
Throughout the 13th to the 16th century, Basque naval technological evolution would produce craft that came to dominate the commercial routes opened up between the Mediterranean and the European Atlantic. This process culminated with the development of the ocean-going ships, which were protagonists of the first circumnavigation and exercised their hegemony in the relations between the old and the new worlds. 2018 is the year of cultural heritage, and the antechamber of the 5th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation of the World by Juan Sebastian Elcano on board the Victoria.

Congress held in Kulturgunea of Pasai Donibane, on May 17 and 18, within the program of the Maritime Festival of Pasaia.
The Congress tries to evaluate the supply of forest products for the Royal Navy, with the intention of analyzing its structure, trying to establish the products, their origin, the participating dealers and traders, the distribution and financing networks at a regional and global level, mainly in relation to the contribution of masts, wood, oars, tars, pit or barriquería for clavetería, for the Royal Navy and its arsenals.
In short, it is about analyzing the role of forest supplies in the construction of the Hispanic fiscal-military state during the eighteenth century, with all its regional, national and international implications. The perspective intends to be geographically wide, that is why the proposals cover geographical areas such as the Philippines, the Caribbean, the Pyrenees, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, etc.
The congress is promoted by the Research Group "Basque Country, Europe and America" and the Imperial Network, and has the help of the Vice-rectorate of the Gipuzkoa campus of the UPV / EHU, the University of Navarra, the Naval Museum of San Sebastian, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, the Pasaia City Council and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
