This documentary introduces viewers to the complex world of ancient mining as it was practiced in the old Roman city of Oiasso, present-day Irun. There, on the western foothills of the Pyrenees and near the Bay of Biscay, stands the granite massif of Aiako Harria. On this site an intense mining activity was taking place; it lasted for several centuries and it was comparable to that of the principal mining centres of the Iberian Peninsula.
