The earliest evidence for an emergent aristocracy in the north-east of the Iberian peninsula can be seen in the appearance of burials of armed individuals, anthropomorphic stelae, metal feasting sets, and, finally, tombs which became cult foci. This range of features first appears in this region between the last third of the seventh century BC and the first half of the sixth century BC. However, these phenomena should be interpreted within their own particular context, which should be included within the framework of wider Mediterranean relations, rather than as merely isolated local events. This chapter presents an analysis of these tombs, particularly the features of weapon graves and isolated graves.
