Treba, Toudo, or Terra. Universal Celtic Political Articulation of Gallaecia by Dr. André Pena

In Treba y Territorium culminating my study initiated in Narón City Council in 1987, I pointed out in Gallaecia the potential Neolithic cradle of the Treba or Toudo/Túath, etc., “Celtic Political Territory”, accompanying to the Middle Ages the institutional developement of the archaeological territorial pattern (14-541)

Trebas, Toudos, Ciuitates/Populi, Terras, Dioceses/Comissos

I should like to warn you, dear reader, that, at least in 1991  [ See Narón, un Concello con Historia de Seu Vol I (1991 nova ed. 2010) ] these papers of our Institutional Archaeology sounded like something new, not so much at this stage when scientists from different fields and countries are supporting this view.

Before, during and after Roman rule, Kaltai, Gallaecia, Northwest Atlantic Iberia experienced a territorial (Celtic Princedoms) organization, still used in the Middle Age

Abstract. In 1992 we summarize the basis of the sovereignty function, and the Political and Religious role of the Celtic Territory, in the Terra de Trasancos, since pre-Roman to Medieval times in a synoptic table, exactly on page 26 of Narón un Concello con Historia de Seu, vol. II [PENA, Andrés (1992. Concello de Narón Ed.].

Sobrevivencia na Galiza do sistema articulativo universal celta [Universal Celtic Law] da época pre-romana á medieval

Twenty years later this table of the denied Celtic Galiza, presented here it is, in the context of the Common Celtic Law, fully applicable to each and every one tribe [trebas/túatha] of Celtic Europe.

castro jurisdicción

For the same reason, the concept of fort as jurisdictional space, as set the picture on page 131 of the above-mentioned papers, is also of universal applicability.

The sape changues but the legal structure remains the same

Model of the habitat evolucion from Celtic Fort to Roman Uilla and Medieval Uilla.

Hierarchic social distribution of space and habitat and economical territory of a Celtic Fort

Internal hierarchic social distribution of space and habitat in an ideal reconstruction of a Galician Castro (Fort). As Institutional Archaeology states, this model is common all over Celtic Europe in the context of the Universal Celtic Law (A. Pena)]. Every fort has also its own boundaries “crica”, defining a little jurisdictional space and an economical territory

En el año 1992, exactamente en la página 26 de Narón un Concello con Historia de Seu. Volumen II [PENA, Andrés (1992). Ed. Concello de Narón] compendiamos en un sinóptico cuadro las bases de la función soberana y la función sagrada del territorio político celta en la Terra de Trasancos desde la época pre-romana a la medieval. Veinte años después este cuadro que presentamos de la renegada Galicia es de plena aplicabilidad en todas y cada una de las tribus (Trebas/Túatha) de la Europa Celta en el contexto de la Common Celtic Law [ see Institutional Archaeology: Universal Celtic Law] . Por el mismo motivo es también de universal aplicabilidad la concepción del castro -tal y como figura el la lámina de la página 131 de la arriba mencionada obra- como un espacio jurisdiccional.
