Ancient Spain and Ancient Portugal

 

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/IberianDNA/default.aspx?section=results

 

This site has a comprehensive study about family's DNA. For example: Gois - I: Nordic (Northwestern European) Origin. In 409 AD, the Suebi (a Baltic people) and the Vandals (an Eastern Germanic people) established themselves on the Iberian Peninsula. Less than 100 years later the Visigoths (an Eastern Germanic people) conquered Iberia, after they had conquered Rome, and settled there in the year 507 AD. The Visigoths’ ancient homeland was Sweden, which they had left around Christ's time. These three Nordic peoples brought Haplogroup I and sub-haplogroups I1 and I2 into Iberia. 13% of modern day Iberians share this origin.


http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/266944/Hispanic

 

Hispania, in Roman times, region comprising the Iberian Peninsula, now occupied by Portugal and Spain. The origins of the name are disputed. When the Romans took the peninsula from the Carthaginians (206 bce), they divided it into two provinces: Hispania Ulterior (present Andalusia, Extremadura, southern León, and most of modern Portugal) and Hispania Citerior, or Tarraconensis (all of what is now northern, eastern, and south-central Spain). Under Augustus (reigned 27 bce–14 ce), Hispania Ulterior was further divided into Lusitania (Portugal and part of western Spain) and Baetica (Andalusia and southern Extremadura).

 

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/471439/Portugal

Portugal, officially Portuguese Republic, Portuguese República Portuguesa,  country lying along the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe.

 

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/557573/Spain

Spain, country located in extreme southwestern Europe. It occupies about 85 percent of the Iberian Peninsula, which it shares with its smaller neighbour Portugal.

This has nice pictures showing arts and sites all aroun  ancient Iberian Peninsula. For example, 

Fresco from Augusta Emerita: Roman city in western Spain, modern Mérida, capital of the province of Lusitania. The amphitheater of Augusta Emerita was, according to an inscription, completed in 8 BCE, which makes it only a couple of years younger than the adjacent theater. Most amphitheaters were used for hunts, executions, and gladiatoral contests. Some frescoes found in the theater represent the hunts.

http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/310

 

This web site from Unesco shows the history of Altamira Cave and the Paleolithic cave art of Northern Spain. The property represents the apogee of Paleolithic cave art developed across europe (35,000 to 11,000 BC.) The pictures represents a testimonies of cultural traditions.

The Iberian peninsula. As its name implies, the Iberian scripts were found mainly in Spain and Portugal, although some are found in southern France as well. The Iberian family of scripts is consisted of two styles , called Northeast and South. Structurally they are more or less the same, and the major difference between them is a geographical location, and b shape of the characters. Both Iberian scripts contain mono-phonemic that is, only one sound, sort of like alphabetic signs as well as syllabic ones.

Prior to Roman conquest, the Iberian peninsula was home to a great number of cultures, including Iberians, Celts, Tartessians, Turdetanian, and Basques. Many of these cultures were literate, and employed a number of similar scripts collectively called Iberian scripts. There are three major scripts in this tradition, simply named by their geographical distribution: Northeastern, Southeastern, and Southwestern scripts.

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16138912

This is part of the abstract of the article “The genetics of the pre-Roman Iberian Peninsula: a mtDNA study of ancient Iberians.” by Sampietro, ML., Caramel, D., Lao, O., Callable, F., Comas, D., Lair, M., Augusti, B., Bertranpetit, J., & Lalueza-Fox, C.  Ann Humm Genet, 2005 Sep; 69(Pt 5): 535-48. (Wiley).

 The Iberians developed a surprisingly sophisticated culture in the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula from the 6th century BC until their conquest by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. They spoke and wrote a non-Indo-European language that still cannot be understood; their origins and relationships with other non-Indo-European peoples, like the Etruscans, are unclear, since their funerary practices were based on the cremation of bodies, and therefore anthropology has been unable to approach the study of this people. We have retrieved mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from a few of the scarce skeletal remains that have been preserved, some of them belonging to ritualistically executed individuals. The most stringent authentication criteria proposed for ancient DNA, such as independent replication, amino-acid analysis, quantitation of template molecules, multiple extractions and cloning of PCR products, have been followed to obtain reliable sequences from the mtDNA hypervariable region 1 (HVR1), as well as some haplogroup diagnostic SNPs.

This is a very complete article about Religion and Religious Practices of the Ancient Celts of the Iberian Peninsula by Francisco Marco Simón, University of Zaragoza. Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies, Volume 6/The Celtics in the Iberian Peninsula.

Religious Romanization, Continuities, Ruptures: Together with language, religion is one of the most reliable criteria for determining ethnicity. In referring to the populations of Baeturia Celtica, a region located on the south side of the Guadiana River, Pliny the Elder asserted that "Celticos a Celtiberis ex Lusitania advenisse manifestum est sacris, lingua, oppidorum vocabulis" (NH 3,13). In other words, the Celtici descended from Celtiberians out of Lusitania (today's Portugal), as indicated by their religion, their language and the names of their cities. However, religion is by nature an elusive phenomenon and, as in the case of the religious systems of the Celts in general, we only have a rather limited knowledge of the Hispanic Celts. This is due to the nature of the information available, since these peoples did not use writing to communicate.

The Ancient Portuguese Bull Fighting Lusitano Horse - Horses

The Ancient Portuguese Bull Fighting Lusitano Horse - Horses | Ancient Portugal | Scoop.it
The Lusitano is an ancient breed of horse native to Portugal that is filled with tradition. It has historical links to the military, to bullfighting and to the classical training methods of the “Haute Йcole”.
edil salgado's insight:

As I am from Brazil I am well related with Portuguese heritage. However, I did not know why the Portuguese use the term “Lusitano” for their people. Was a good surprise to read this article and found out that the term was given by the ancient Romans and is compared with the ancient Romans gave to Spain called “Andalusia.” The other suprise was the name associated with horses. Cool.
