Step back in time to see life in New Spain through the eyes of its female residents on Saturday during Living History Days at Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum.

The theme for this month Living History Days is "La Vida de la Mujer."

"La Vida de la Mujer," will use the accounts collected from the Juan Bautista de Anza expedition to re-enact life in New Spain. 

The event goes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition to themed activities, other events include a tasting of hand-made tortillas and fresh-made bread, interactive demonstrations of children's games and weaving, soldiers practicing drills and the hourly firing of a four-pound bronze cannon, watching and learning how soldiers fire their muskets and pumping the bellows of the blacksmith's forge.

El Presidio San Agustín del Tucson is located on 196 North Court Avenue.
