  Iberians - MSN Encarta
It is widely supposed that the Iberians were generally short and dark-skinned; that primarily they were agriculturalists (some were also miners and metalworkers); that quite possibly they lived in and around politically independent city-states; and that undoubtedly they possessed a sophisticated written literature.
The Iberian language was replaced by Latin during the six centuries of Roman rule.
Theories that attempt in some way to relate the ancient Iberians to the Basques, and the Iberian language to that of the Basques, are not supported by modern scholarship.

 Iberians on wine
I received so many and so sharp criticism on my first contribution to “Iberians on wine” (high prices, low quality, lousy wines) that this time I decided to pay a visit to my regular suppliers -Siguero, Barolo, Lavinia- and at the same time do the wine shopping for my summer holydays in Asturias.
I don’t know yet what I enjoyed the most: the time I spent choosing the wines -there were quite a few people wine-hunting, we chatted and street talked quite a bit - or tasting the wines later in Asturias.
I admit that a Latin name has a universal ring to it and that Romans loved wine from all of the Iberian peninsula -we don´t know how good it was but they certainly enjoyed it a lot.

In the 6th century, the Greeks used the word “Iberoi” (“Iberians”) to refer to the members of a tribe on the southern or western coast of the Iberian Peninsula, but whose precise location was not known.
Defining the term “Iberians” is therefore the result of a century’s worth of research on written texts and archaeological discoveries.

 The Iberians
The qualities which made the Iberian horse so much sought after as a riding horse and as a charger were the short-coupled body with its wide, powerful loins and quarters, and the high action with well-flexed knees and hocks, all of which made for a horse that ‘rounded’ naturally.
Some people object that the Iberian breeds lack forward impulsion; yet while their powerful quarters and hindlegs generate a tremendous amount of impulsion, this is directed both forwards and upwards into collected movement rather than simply forwards and ‘out of the front door’.
Now this may be true of some Iberians, but there are many more who, if correctly trained and ridden, are perfectly capable of producing extended paces which, if not as spectacular as those of the big Warmbloods (against whom they are generally measured), are nevertheless more than adequate for covering the ground efficiently.

Their sole strength was in cavalry; Pharasmanes was also powerful in infantry, for the Iberians and Albanians, inhabiting as they did a densely wooded country, were more inured to hardship and endurance.
And now the Albanians and Iberians seized, and hurled the Parthians from their steeds, and embarrassed their enemy with a double attack, pressed as they were by the cavalry on the heights and by the nearer blows of the infantry.
Meanwhile Pharasmanes and Orodes, who, as they cheered on the brave and supported the wavering, were conspicuous to all, and so recognised each other, rushed to the combat with a shout, with javelins, and galloping chargers, Pharasmanes with the greater impetuosity, for he pierced his enemy's helmet at a stroke.

 Basque and the Language of the Iberians
The term Iberian is used for the aboriginal inhabitants of the peninsula now occupied by Spain and Portugal.
Originally the term was applied to the people residing near the mouth of the Ebro River in eastern Spain, but gradually was expanded to include the ancient inhabitants of all of the peninsula.

This proposal, together with Góngora’s hypothesis on the survival of Iberian population in the eastern and western (Basque and Catalonian) Pyrenees, make up the four questions to be discussed in archaeological debates on the first inhabitants of the Iberian peninsula and, also, by extension, in debates on nationalism.
The former identified the Basque language as the pure remains of the Iberian culture; this was a basic element of the foundations of the Spanish nationalist liberal archaeology.
Based on his knowledge of Iberian epigraphy and on his defence of Basqueiberianism, Gómez-Moreno proposed that the original Iberian nucleus, that is the original nucleus of Spanish identity, reached from the Basque area to Valencia (Figure 3) (Gómez-Moreno 1949).
