Origin of the room's name

José Miguel de Barandiaran (1889 – 1991). He was a Basque ethnographer and archaeologist born in Ataún. He was a member of the Conciliar Seminary of Vitoria-Gasteiz where he studied Philosophy, Teaching and Theology. He continued his studies at the Sorbonne and the Paris Institute. Upon his return to the Basque Country, he was ordained a priest, researched Basque prehistory and ethnography and discovered, among others, nine prehistoric dolmens in the Sierra de Aralar. With the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, he went into exile in France from where he continued his research. On his return, in 1953, he chaired the Society for Basque Studies and created the Ethnographic Atlas of the Basque Country.
