The tribes confederated as the Aquitani and other pre-Indo-European tribes. The Vascones were a pre-Roman tribe who, at the arrival of the Romans on the 1st Century BC, inhabited a territory that spanned between the upper course of the Ebro river and the southern basin of the western Pyrenees in the Iberian Peninsula.

The Picts were an undetermined mixture of the original stone-age Neolithic peoples from the Iberian peninsula + "Basques" from southwest Europe + Copper-using "Beaker" peoples from north-western Europe + Halstatter and LaTene Celts from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Caledonians were probably 95% aboriginal and 5% Celt.
