The Arevaci are a warlike people. From their Celtic origins in northern central Iberia, they have expanded east and southwest through migration and conquest, displacing a number of other tribes in the process. Their capital is Numantia, east of the great 'Meseta Central' plateau that runs through the heart of Iberia. The region's topography lends itself to the mass 'transhumance', or livestock migration, to the grassy lowlands of the Ebro valley, which provides the Arevaci's chief food supply. Chiefly a militaristic society, they also hold the rite of 'excarnation', the practice of leaving dead warriors' bodies on their funeral litters so flesh and organs can be stripped by vultures.

However, foreign superpowers now gather at the borders of Arevaci lands. On the fringes of the peninsula, the 'civilised' men of Africa and Italy grow restless. Iberia is a melting pot of tensions; several factions vie for control of the region. Even with their superb knowledge of the terrain, excellent fighting prowess, and strong alliances with other tribal peoples taken into account, can the Arevaci stave off the imperialist ambitions of Carthage and Rome indefinitely?

Elder Chiefs

The Arevaci are a Celtic people who settled in the centre of the Iberian peninsula around 1000BC. Although chiefly concerned with the farming of livestock, they are also highly militaristic and expansionist in outlook. The elders are their wisest men.
