The culture of ancient Iberia is the result of the evolution of the indigenous communities of the Late Bronze Age interacting with alternate Mediterranean cultures, first the Phoenicians and then the Greeks and Carthaginians. This took place between the sixth and first centuries bce, slowly disappearing with the Romanization of the Iberian peninsula. This culture was characterized by an important social and territorial hierarchy that developed primarily in the eastern and central regions of the peninsula, extending past the Pyrenees to what is now southern France (see Figure 71.1).
