Español: Vista exterior del museo de la Villa romana de La Olmeda en Pedrosa de la Vega (Palencia, Castilla y León). La Olmeda fue descubierta en el verano de 1968, en el transcurso de unos trabajos para reducir un pequeño alto en unas tierras de labor propiedad de Javier Cortes Álvarez de Miranda. Durante los mismos, se observaron los restos de una serie de construcciones en un alto y el 5 de julio, al investigarlos, llegaron hasta los 65 centímetros de profundidad donde hallaron pavimento de mosaico. Ante su descubrimiento, se paralizaron los trabajos y se planificó una excavación arqueológica, para empezar ese mismo verano, con el permiso del Ministerio de Educación. La fórmula de excavación elegida fue la de excavación privada, en la que la financiación total corría a cargo del excavador, ponía todo lo hallado a disposición de los investigadores y su dirección estaba en manos de un arqueólogo profesional, a la vez que se reconocía al excavador como propietario del yacimiento. La dirección de los trabajos fue encargada al entonces catedrático de arqueología de la Universidad de Valladolid, Pedro de Palol, y la consolidación inicial de los mosaicos fue llevada a cabo por un equipo dirigido por Antonio Díaz Pintiado. Más tarde se incorporó Domiciano Ríos, a quien posteriormente han correspondido los trabajos de conservación del yacimiento, especialmente los mosaicos. Asimismo, en esos primeros años, Javier Cortes llevó a cabo él mismo la construcción de los primeros edificios protectores y las visitas. En 1988 se hizo cargo de la dirección de las excavaciones José Antonio Abásolo Álvarez, también catedrático de la Universidad de Valladolid, y Miguel Nozal, arqueólogo de Saldaña, como subdirector. El yacimiento continuó excavándose, ampliándose tanto el cerramiento como la pasarela. Comenzó la tarea de divulgación, mediante libros, guías, folletos, que se complementaron desde 2001 con productos de merchandising. En 2004 se abrieron al público las termas y se convocó el concurso para la nueva adecuación del yacimiento, resultando ganadores los arquitectos Paredes y Pedrosa. El 3 de abril de 2009, tras casi cuatro años de obras, se reabrió la Villa al público con el nuevo edificio. Desde su apertura en 1984, la afluencia de visitantes ha ido en aumento, con unos 30.000 anuales, siendo más de 200.000 desde su reapertura en 2009. Se trata de la villa romana más importante de España y la segunda villa con mayor extensión de mosaicos de todo el Imperio Romano
