Last Tuesday 2nd of March Javier Bikarregi, professor of law at the University of Deusto, came to the school to give us a talk about the historical influence that England has had on Bizkaia, and particularly on Bilbao. According to Mr. Bikarregi, there were two types of relationships; commercial relationships based on the exchange of iron and gold and social relations where the British influenced us in many different areas such as architecture or sports (football).

In conclusion, Bizkaia and England have had very special relationships for centuries that unfortunately now we are losing, at the same time that we lose our cultural heritage.
