The Iberian city of the Espígol Mill

The Iberian city of El Molí d'Espígol is considered to be one of the most important Iberian sites in Catalonia. According to the specialists, it is one of the most prominent urban centers of the ilergeta culture. The investigations show that it was a political and economic center of the first order, which suggests that it could be identified with the ancient city of Atanagrum, the capital of the ilergets according to the Roman historian Titus Livi.


Renewed equipment

The texts, written in Catalan, Spanish, English and French, summarizes the cultural characteristics of so-called Iberian peoples, tell the story of the people and expose ilergeta urban characteristics of the city Iberian Lavender's Mill.


One of the outstanding aspects of the work has been the elaboration of a hypothetical recreation of the Iberian city of the Mill of Espígol, realized by the sketcher Albert Àlvarez Marsal. The image of the city is based on the results of the archaeological campaigns and the interpretations made by archaeologists and is a first-order resource to improve the understanding of the site. The project has been completed with the development of the audiovisual Atanagrum.

In particular, he tells the story of alliances, betrayals and confrontations that starring the two mythical Indiber and Mandoni lame chiefs. Ilergets were the Iberian people inhabited by the rivers Segre and Cinca. Classical sources speak it from the 6th century BC. and we know them through the Greek and Roman history books that explain their involvement in the great wars of their time and, especially, during the Second Punic War that faced Rome and Carthage for the rule of the Mediterranean.
