Celtiberians

 

tribes in northeastern Spain of mixed Iberian and Celtic stock; Celts settled in the Iberian Peninsula between the fifth and third centuries B.C. The Arevaci were the main tribe. The area inhabited by the tribes was called Celtiberia. In 195 B.C. part of Celtiberia was conquered by the Romans, and by 72 B.C. the entire region had become part of the Roman province of Hispania Citerior. The subjugated Celtiberians waged a protracted struggle against the Roman conquerors, staging uprisings in 195–193, 181–179, 153–151, 143–133, and 80–72 (the Sertorius rebellion).

Las fronteras de la Celtiberia, que ocupaba el centro de la Peninsula Iberica, gran parte de la Meseta entre las cuencas del Ebro y el Tajo, parece que fueron cambiando a lo largo de los siglos y tambien la percepcion que se tiene actualmente de ese territorio, ya que al tiempo que se conoce un mayor numero de necropolis se constata una mayor diferenciacion entre ellas (Cerdeno y Garcia-Huerta, 2001: 142; Burillo, 2005).
