Abstract

This study offers new data on the local appropriation of the ideals associated with the warrior in Europe during the Late Bronze Age through the new study of the engravings of Cancho Roano and Arroyo Tamujoso 8, located in the Southwest of the Iberian Peninsula, of their supports and landscape contexts. He uses cutting-edge digital technologies to identify some of the most distinctive features of that iconography, revealing various responses to the warrior ideals that were in circulation in Europe during that period. To understand circulation contexts from a local perspective, we also briefly consider the multi-scale connections involved in communities that created warrior stelae in Iberia.
