The ruins tell us how the daily life and the suffering of the inhabitants of Numancia before the harassment of Rome
Numancia is a symbol of resistance and struggle of a people for freedom
The attitude of the numantinos impacted so much in the consciousness of the conquerors, that they in turn were conquered by the numantina cause felt, as evidenced by the fact that it is the city celtibérica most quoted by Roman writers.
Their heroic resistance and will be glossed end up exalting, raising the behavior of numantinos a heroic deed and thus providing a universal dimension.
When visiting the ruins of Numancia, twelve information panels and reconstructions of archaeological remains tell us how the daily life and the suffering of the inhabitants of Numancia during the harassment of Rome.
In the hard-fought ruins have been rebuilt as were the Celtic and Roman houses, with utensils of that time, we can also find utensils exposed in the Numantino Museum in Soria.
The visit to the site is complemented by the archaeological room, located in the heart of the village of Garray. There are two rooms separated by a wall, on one hand the Celtiberian room and Roman room on the other.
In the Roman room will see the reconstruction of a Roman camp, the Roman army facing the numantino army, plus explanatory panels of everyday life in a Roman camp.
