They became part of the medieval Kingdom of Aragon in 1105 during the Spanish Reconquista, as Muslim rule in the region was falling back; the town retains many medieval buildings, including: the Romanesque church of Santa María de la Corona. It was renewed in 1649-1650. Church of San Salvador, it has a 16th-century portal with Romanesque sculptures Church of our Lady the Virgin of the Olive, renovated in 1765 over a pre-existing medieval building The municipality of Ejea de los Caballeros comprises nine different centres of population: Ejea de los Caballeros Bardenas El Bayo El Sabinar Farasdués Pinsoro Rivas Santa Anastasia ValareñaRivas and Farasdués are two historic villages that have been dependencies of Ejea for decades. The other six centres were built in the nineteen fifties and sixties in order to settle inhabitants and farmers to grow irrigation crops because of the building of Yesa reservoir and Bardenas irrigation channel that brought water to this villages, among others.

The main local fiesta honours the Virgin of the local saint. In June, it is celebrated the patron saint, Saint John the Baptist, in a medieval way. Another local festival commemorates The Vote Day, an event during the Black Plague, when the townsfolk voted for the bringing of the Virgin of the Olive across the town to worship her; the plague is purported to have ended that day in Ejea de los Caballeros.

Close-space sublimation

Closed space sublimation is a method of producing thin-films, esp. cadmium telluride photovoltaics, though it is used for other materials like antimony triselenide. It is a type of physical vapor deposition where the substrate to be coated and the source material are held close to one another, they are both placed in a vacuum chamber, pumped down. The source and substrate are heated; the source is heated to some fraction of its melting temperature, the substrate some lower temperature e.g. 750 °C and 550 °C, respectively. This causes sublimation of the source, allowing vapors to travel a short distance to the substrate, where they condense, producing a thin film; this short-path diffusion is similar in principle to short-path distillation. Compared to other techniques, it is a relevantly insensitive process, takes as little as 10 min for an entire cycle; this makes it a viable technique for large-scale manufacturing

Sumatran dhole

The Sumatran dhole known as the Sumatran wild dog is a subspecies of dhole native to the Indonesian islands of Sumatra. As of 2005, the origin of the Sumatran dhole is unclear, as it shows a greater relatedness to the Ussuri dhole rather than with dholes in nearby Malaysia. In the absence of further data, it is speculated that the dholes of Indonesia could have been introduced to the Sunda Islands by humans; the Sumatran dhole is the smallest dhole subspecies. It has bright red fur; the Sumatran dhole lacks woolly underfur. Instead, it has a darker coarse and leaner fur, similar to the southernmost populations of Ussuri dholes in India and Indochina; the Sumatran dhole range is fragmented and Indonesian dholes are confirmed to live in multiple protected areas of Sumatra and Java. In 2014, camera trap videos in the tropical forests of the Kerinci Seblat National Park in Sumatra revealed the continued presence of dholes in the area. Dholes are extinct in Singapore. Sumatran dholes live in scrublands, plains, tropical forests and rainforests.

Habitat loss and fragmentation is a major threat to Sumatran dholes living in protected areas in Indonesia those on Sumatra. Habitat loss is driven by several different factors, including logging and rubber plantations, agriculture expansion, rural biomass extraction, livestock grazing and major infrastructure expansion
