The aim of this paper is to present a pilot study applying GIS to analyse regional processes among Iron Age societies in the Mediterranean façade of the Iberian Peninsula (Iberian Culture, 6th–1st century BC). This is the study of La Plana d’Utiel region (València, Spain), using GIS to analyse the emergence of the spatial and territorial complexity as reflection of the socio-cultural complexity of its inhabitants. GIS has provided us a powerful set of tools to study the landscape, the settlement pattern and the complex spatial relations among all our agents and objects. And most importantly, to analyse the complex process of a territory formation as the construction of places with functions and identities. This research underscores the necessity of developing a research that is holistic rather than atomistic, in order to integrate the many aspects of ancient Iberian society.
