    The Iberians (Latin: Hibērī, from Greek: Ίβηρες, Iberes) were a set of people that Greek and Roman sources (among others, Hecataeus of Miletus, Avienus, Herodotus and Strabo) identified with that name in the eastern and southern coasts of the Iberian peninsula, at least from the 6th century BC.

    The Iberian peninsula has a varied and mountainous landscape that has promoted regional division and the isolation of human settlement throughout prehistory and during most of history, until the development of modern transportation. This has created ample opportunities for stark regional variations to develop, be it in culture, language, or genetics. On the other hand, Spain and Portugal are two of the oldest countries in continuous existence in Europe. This long political unity has favoured intermarriages within each country for much longer than in, say, Italy or Germany, which had a moderate uniformising effect on each country's gene pool. A wide range of peoples have settled in Iberia since the end of the last Ice Age. Phoenicians, Celts, Greeks, Jews, Romans, Goths, Suebi, Franks, Arabs and Berbers. All have left their genetic print on the populations of the regions where they settled. This page attempts to identify their genetic markers through the use of Y-chromosomal (Y-DNA)...

    Paleolithic to Early Neolithic

    Iberia was one of the last region of Europe reached by anatomically modern humans, and therefore also one of the last stronghold for Neanderthals. Modern humans are thought to have reached Iberia from France approximately 28,000 years ago. The last pure Neanderthals may have survived until 24,000 years ago around Gibraltar. The skull of a 4 year-old Neanderthal boy displayed signs of hydridisation bewteen Neanderthals and Homo sapiens. It is now known that all modern Europeans and Asians carr...

    Late Neolithic to Bronze Age

    The Late Neolithic period and Copper Age (two periods that juxtapose one another, depending on the region) were very propitious for Iberia. Around 2,800 BCE, a new archeological culture emerged in the Tagus estuary in central Portugal, the so-called Bell Beaker phenomenon. Often referred to as a culture, it was almost certainly not a unified entity, be it politically, linguistically or ethnically, but rather a vast multicultural trade network. For the next 500 years it would spread on land an...

    Phoenicians & Greeks

    Between 1200 and 539 BCE the Phoeniciansbuilt a vast commercial empire from their Levantine homeland along the southern Mediterranean as far as Andalusia. The oldest city in Iberia is Cadiz, which was founded by the Phoenicians as Gadir or Agadir in 1104 BCE. The Phoenicians also founded Almuñécar, Malaga, Cartaya and Huelva, and settled in other existing cities such as Tartessos and Carmona. Based on the haplogroups found in modern Lebanon and in their former colonies, the Phoenicians seem t...

    Looking at autosomal DNA (i.e. the whole genome except the X and Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA), Iberian people are remarkably homogeneous - in a way that couldn't be guessed by looking at the distribution of Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroups only. This is because genes spread fast in a population linked by a common language and a unified political entity. Paternal lineages often maintain regional and local patterns inherited over the centuries and millennia because in patriarchic societies, like Europe has been at least since the Bronze Age, it has consistently been men who inherited their parents's land, and women who married in the next village or town. This kept male lineages more fixed geographically than female lineages or overall genes. Only major geographic or linguistic obstacles, like crossing the snow-capped Cantabrian Mountains, or intermarrying with speakers of an utterly different language like Basque, would have serious hindered the propagation of autosomal DNA in the...

    The majority of Iberian paternal lineages are of Indo-European (R1b, G2a3b1, J2b2 and a small amount of R1a), which can be attributed to the Proto-Celtic and Hallstatt Celtic invaders, and to a lower extent to later Roman and Germanic settlers. In total, these amount to 50-85% of Spanish Y-DNA and 60% of Portuguese Y-DNA. Maternal lineages, on the other hand, appear to have a mostly Neolithic and Mesolithicorigin, notably haplogroups H1, H3, HV0, K1a, J1c, J2a1, J2b1a, T2, U5b, V and X, which make up over 80% of the mtDNA in regions like the Basque country or Asturias, and always over 50% of the population of any region. Western Iberia, from Galicia and Asturias to southern Portugal and western Andalusia, have relatively high percentages of Southwest AsianY-chromosomal haplogroups (E-M34, J1, J2a, T). Their historical origin is diverse, being the cumulative contributions of Levantine Neolithic herders, Phoenicians, Jews and Arabs, although their exact proportion remains difficult to...

  7. Iberian Deities - Timeless Myths

    The Iberians were most likely the natives of Spain, occupying the whole Iberian Peninsula, and therefore called Iberia. However, many different people had migrated to Spain quite early in the 1st millennium BC, particularly in the south east coasts, by the Greeks and the Phoenicians or Carthaginians.

    The Celtiberians were a group of Celts and Celticized peoples inhabiting the central-eastern Iberian Peninsula during the final centuries BC. They were explicitly mentioned as being Celts by several classic authors (e.g. Strabo). These tribes spoke the Celtiberian language and wrote it by adapting the Iberian alphabet.
