Throughout history, due to the writings of Roman historians/writers, these ancient people were portrayed as evil and barbaric. There were hardly any other sources to consult except these, who by the way, were their sworn enemies and eventual conquerors, and thus slightly suspect.
New archaeological discoveries are disputing what the Romans said and are shedding a different light on these folk. From Spain and North Africa and other Mediterranean lands newly discovered data show a totally different picture of these descendents of the Phoenicians.
Another instance of historical manipulation.
