The page indicates Marcus Aurelius was born in Hispania, whereas his page says he was born in Rome.

Overall, article is very good. Making some of the terms like Qunitus Ennius into links by using the term function would link up this article to other articles. Also, you might want to include a map just so that people would understand the general location of the region even if they don't know the borders you are referring to. It would also be interesting to know what present day or even Roman time cities are located in Hispania Ulterior. In the second paragraph of the history section, you accidentally typed in a 6 after conquest. "Soon afterwards, the 2nd Punic War began, much of which was fought in Hispania." This sentence is awkward. For the history section, would it be possible to include Julius Caesar's conquests in this section. Finally, in the reference section you may want to include what the Penelope website actually is or put its name to make it clear what is there. A very good article overall that includes a wide variety of information. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MoulinChokshi (talkcontribs) 02:00, 14 May 2007 (UTC).

Links to other wiki would save readers some trouble. Also, you might want to change the third section title to 'Roman effects on Hispania'. 'Carthago' in the second line of Paragraph 2 (History section) is missing an 'h' in spelling. 'the Lusitania’s success' in Paragraph 3 of History, doesn't seem right.. At the end of the same paragraph, Hispania is misspelled as 'Hispanica'. I think the History section is well-organized, but the Roman Effects section seems to jump around a little. You also might extend the See Also section to include a couple more terms. Were you able to uncover data on the culture of the people living in the region? That might give the article a more wholesome background. However, this article does provide a lot of information on an topic that was previously neglected. Well-written, and for the most part, well organized. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 129.105.138.233 (talk) 21:38, 15 May 2007 (UTC).

I agree - good article. The broad historical sweep and relation to other events of the period are excellent. Same comment as some of the others - please make citations in the body of the text so readers have an idea of where you're getting information from. Use the reference command in wikipedia.

As far as the geographic boundaries and picture, I would suggest using the same picture from the Spanish wikipedia entry.

Also, a section begins by referring to a war which started in 155 BC, and says it continued to 19 BC with Agrippa's victory. It would be nice to know more about what motivated the revolt, what sustained it, and some of its intricacies. One example is the control which Sextus Pompey exercised over the region after Caesar's death. All in all, good work.
