The Ceretani and the iberization of the Oriental Pyrenees (4th-3rd c. BC). A new historical and archaeological approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

© 2018 CSIC. The archaeological works developed in the Cerdanya region (Eastern Pyrenees) in the last 15 years have made possible the identification of the Cerretani, a community briefly mentioned by Greco-Roman authors. Characteristics such as its origin, its cultural affiliation, and its peculiar territorial and economic patterns, have been identified for the first time from the study of some of its main sites. It is an ethnic group with a clear mountain and livestock component, who developed an interesting oppida system and an amazing rock epigraphic corpus.
