Iberians
#1
Are there any good materials out there on the Celt-Iberians? I'm debating doing a Celt-Iberian impression in addition to my Roman one as it seems to be one of the more neglected barbarian impressions, given their impact on Roman fighting tactics. I'm going to order the osprey book, if anyone knows of other ones let me know.

Thanks.

Thanks for the links, I had my brother read them for me. (he took Spainish for 4 years in school, I took German for 3) As I look at the illustrations, the native Iberians were the ones I was thinking of, I must have gotten the two mixed up. I want to portray the ones the Romans refered to as scutiarri;(sp?) something like the guy in the foreground of this image with the colorful shield.

BTW, any idea what that headgear is made out of?

I believe it's usually interpreted as a sinew cap.

There are several great books in Spanish that deal with the issue as well as there are also Spanish reenactors doing Celtiberian or Iberian.

I would like to do something like this:

Comerus, by any chance did you come to Marching Through Time in April? I think we might have met, I was the tall skinny auxillary. I guess there will be two Iberians at North East U.S. events.

There might be one at a Rennisance fair in Netcong New Jersey in October, other than that it would be Marching Through Time next April.
