The Urban Connectivity in Iron Age and Roman Southern Spain project was a recently completed three-year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project, based at the University of Southampton, focussed on the various social, economic and geographical relationships apparent between towns and nucleated settlements. This paper introduces the computational components required by and developed within the project in order to facilitate both the incorporation and integration of disparate data sets, and their analysis through a range of spatial and statistical techniques, including network analysis. Network analysis methodologies, coupled with very fine grained and critical assimilation of available data are seen to provide a context for a clearer understanding of towns in general, and in particular a clearer characterization of links between Iberian and Roman urban settlements in southern Spain.
