From the rural community to the gates of an industrial society.

In this section we will cover from the beginning, the whole historical process of the valley and its people. Who, from the first settlers in their Celtic forts advanced in time and through social ways of life, from the subsistence of a rural community, to the strong emergence of the steel and mining industry in the first decades of the 19th Century.

 

From Prehistory to the Romanization.

Although the references, both material and documentary, about the first occupations in the valley are very scarce, the confirmation of the presence of man in these high valleys of Leon is very clear. The settlements of Celtic forts that have been identified in the valley along with the Vadinian gravestones found reaffirm the presence of settlement in this area, already from the 5th Century B.C. to the 4th Century A.D. It was possibly the contact with the Roman world that influenced almost unchangeably, the close relationship that existed between man and his natural environment which enabled their subsistence.

 

The formation of medieval towns.

The stable occupation of space by people or individuals united by blood ties, bonds of service or beliefs, is the seed of the primitive village communities. Within these rural societies the ways of life remain unchanged, the commercial relationships and transactions are done in the closed environment of the valley's community. The presence of the artisans along with the farmers meant that the important balance was maintained which was necessary for subsistence.

 

Daily life in a rural setting.

The emergence of the church within the rural communities with the presence of the parish generated some forms of coexistence between the official religion and the ancestral practices and beliefs that had been maintained throughout the centuries. Education was a privilege of the oligarchy; the masses very rarely attended school.
