3. Iberian Barkeno
In ancient times, the settlers on the plain embraced the traits of Iberian culture. The territory was occupied by a network of hierarchical settlements with sites on Montjuïc and Turó de la Rovira coupled with agricultural communities on the plain. The River Llobregat connected with the hinterland and its mouth was a major trading port and point of contact with other Mediterranean cultures.
The arrival of the Romans at the end of the 3rd century BC, first as a military expedition and later settled in new cities, brought with it a raft of cultural changes and the disappearance of Iberian culture.
