The artefacts of the Celtiberians come from Numantia and others part of the Province of Soria. They were a people who inhabited the peninsula during the last centuries BC and Numantia was an Iron Age hill fort, an oppidum, which they inhabited near Soria. The Romans besieged the fort but the Numantians burnt it rather than surrender the town, and many committed suicide. The tribe had finally been subjugated by the Romans.
