|Description ||The Battle of Atapuerca took place near this stone which was later inscribed to commemorate it.|
“ The Battle of Atapuerca was fought in 1 September 1054 at the site of Piedrahita ("standing stone") in the valley of Atapuerca between brothers King García Sánchez III, El de Nájera, of Navarre and King Ferdinand I, the Great, of Castile and León.
The Castilians won and King García was killed in battle. Ferdinand reannexed Navarrese territory he conceded to García 17 years early after his brother’s assistance at Pisuerga."
