Este volumen aborda los cambios de las comunidades de la Edad del Hierro en el Alto Duero (Soria, España), en términos de poder e identidades. Los principales temas abordados son el establecimiento del asentamiento estable en la región, el surgimiento de centros urbanos, la construcción de autoridad y genealogías, las transformaciones identitarias durante el primer milenio a. n. e. y los encuentros con Roma. Combinando un amplio conjunto de datos arqueológicos con referencias históricas, datos antropológicos y Sistemas de Información Geográfica, este trabajo aporta información esencial sobre cómo funcionaron y se transformaron las sociedades del primer milenio a. n. e. 

This volume explores the changes of Iron Age communities in the Upper Duero River (North-Central Spain), in terms of power and identities. The main topics addressed are the establishment of stable settlement in the region, the emergence of urban centres, the construction of authority and genealogies, identity transformations over the first millennium BCE, and encounters with Rome. Using a large body of archaeological data in combination with historical references, anthropological insights and Geographical Information Systems, this work contributes valuable information on how Iron Age societies worked and transformed.

REVIEWS
‘The work of R. Liceras is totally original. In fact, it is one of the few works that investigate questions of gender, ethnicity and power relations in the pre-Roman world of central Iberian Peninsula. As a specialist on the Iron Age of central Spain, I think it is a very remarkable work, because it renews old-fashioned ideas and standardises the currently existing information.’ Dr Jesús A. Arenas-Esteban, Universidad a Distancia de Madrid

‘The Iron Age in central Iberia has a century-long research tradition, but there are no alternative accounts beyond the stagnant and hackneyed culture-historical readings, based on descriptions and not daring to make interpretations in social, political and symbolic terms. The book is timely and represents an important contribution, with more nuanced and better-informed assessments than most of the available archaeological narratives.’ Dr Antonio Blanco-González, Universidad de Salamanca
