Since the Prehistoric times, Roa became a place frequented by farmers and ranchers communities due to its strategic position. It has been documented as a village from the I Iron Age, formed by people from the so-called Cultura del Soto de Medinilla.

The archaeological area is currently out of the old medieval wall.

Between the VI and IV centuries BC, these settlers produced handmade pottery, used bronze tools and began to learn how to make iron. In the century I, the territory got romanized after the capture of Numantia and the village got much reduced.
