The paper compiles the most important archaeological studies carried out in Jaén in the past forty years by what is now the University of Jaén’s Institute of Iberian Archaeology, as well as those undertaken by researchers from other institutions.
Settlements such as the Plaza de Armas of Puente Tablas, the El Pajarillo sanctuary, La Lobera cave, the necropolis of Castellones de Ceal, and the tumulus and sculpture assemblage of El Cerrillo Blanco, among others, provide us with an up-to-date view of Iberian archaeology in Jaén.
The sequence of the work corresponds to the Iberian historical process in the Alto Guadalquivir, from the creation of the oppidum and the emergence of the princes, to their expansion into larger territories with pyramidal structures and the zenith of the clientele model. After the Second Punic War another process began with the conquest, transformation and hybridisation of the Iberian societies, which can be traced into the second and first centuries BCE.
