1. 'Fontes Linguae Vasconum' is born

The creation of Fontes Linguae Vasconum journal was not an isolated event. It has to be seen in the context of efforts to promote Basque and the heritage of Navarre undertaken by the Regional Council of Navarre (Diputación Foral de Navarra), and within it, the Prince of Viana Institute and the Department of the Promotion of Basque (1957-1972).

This section includes documents and photographs from that period, which illustrate the work of the Department of the Promotion of Basque and the development of the journal.

Uztarroz (year 1965). From left to right, the men are: Jose Maria Satrustegui, Luis Maria Irigaray, Pedro Diez de Ulzurrun, Jose Angel Irigaray and Aingeru Irigaray. The women are: Ricarda Perez Marco, Teodora Layana and Timotea Labari.
