There is some literary and archaeological evidence that ancient Iberians practiced headhunting and severed the hands of their enemies as trophies, which they exhibited around their bodies according to Diodorus Siculus. Human hands and heads are a common symbol in Iberian stone monuments, and trophy heads have been found in two archaeological sites in Catalonia (Ullastret and Puig Castellar). These severed heads were originally nailed to the facades of buildings and public spaces. Iberians were often employed as mercenaries in the armies of the Mediterranean and famously crossed the Alps at the service of Hannibal Barca. It is likely that Pyrrhus of Epirus also encountered Iberians while fighting the multi-ethnic Carthaginian army in Sicily.

Lacking access to modern machines that we have now, their methods of blacksmithing must have been surprisingly clever and it's a shame that much of that craftsmans knowledge has been lost.
Great one! I love iberians, one of the first comics I got ever (Gorja Mortal) was about them and made me love History.
Really love the Falcata (the almudenilla one?) the helmet with all the decoration, the torques, and hell, all the piece as its so photo-realistic, and of course the best Disc-Cuirass I ever seen drawn, that's a astounding work man.
