This chapter summarizes the recent contributions of archaeology to our knowledge of some of the major phases from the end of the third century until the total conquest of Hispania during Augustus's time. It situates this framework within the process of Romanization in the western Mediterranean. The chapter ends with a discussion of the reforms undertaken during Augustus's era in order to complete the historic cycle of the Roman conquest of Hispania (218-19), to better understand the decisions that were made and the actions that were taken that would situate the entire Iberian Peninsula within the Roman sphere, especially between the last years of the Roman Republic and the final decades of the first century, when two figures were key and complementary: Caesar and Augustus, with the crucial work carried out by Agrippa. © 2013 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
