Atlantic Europe in the First Millennium BC

The warrior stelae constitute one of the most debated topics of Spanish late prehistory, with a substantial literature that, at the time of writing, comprises six monographs and catalogues and more than a hundred articles. In recent years, the discussion of these monuments has been reinvigorated, partly because the steady growth in their number has increased their variability, posing new challenges to research, but also because they still hold a somewhat disproportionate relative significance for the archaeological study of the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age societies in the region. This chapter makes a contribution to this recent upsurge of the debate. The discussion starts from a critique of some previous approaches and then, departing from the study carried out on the newly found Almadén de la Plata stelae, suggests new perspectives of analysis.

Keywords:   warrior stelae, Spanish late prehistory, late Bronze Age, early Iron Age, Almadén de la Plata
