Roman presence in Iberia from A Portrait of Spain course


Al principio, la presencia romana en Iberia consistía en asentamientos militares que gradualmente se desplazaron hacia el oeste, conquistando a las tribus nativas. El asedio de Numancia, que duró más de ocho meses y terminó con el suicidio colectivo de los numantinos, es un testimonio del coraje y la resistencia de las tribus nativas a la dominación romana.

At first the Roman presence in Iberia was in the form of military outposts which gradually moved westwards, conquering the native tribes.  The siege of Numantia, which lasted over eight months and ended with the mass suicide of the Numantians, is a testimony to the courage and resistance of the native tribes to Roman domination.
