Abstract. This paper analyzes the shaping of emotional topographies in connection with late Iron Age hillforts (2nd-1st centuries BC) in Northwestern Iberia using a performative approach. In particular, it explores how, by engaging with various material and iconographic forms and practices, people were affected emotionally in ways that helped to structure the social reality of the local communities. By examining the manner in which people engaged with this material world, we can trace the creation of new sociomaterial strategies of resistance, which were crucial in managing anxieties caused by Roman presence in the region.
Keywords: Archaeology of Emotions, Performativity, Materiality, Iconography, Iron Age, Romanization, Castro Culture.
