The work collects all the anthropological and archaeological evidence relating to the spread of human settlements and to the population dynamics in the territory of Acqui Terme (AL - Italy) during the Iron Age, starting from the last phase of the Bronze Age and arriving to the beginning of the process of Romanization in the North-Western Italy. The analysis is developed through the study of the dynamics of 'macro-system' inherent in Northern Italy. The paper is linked to the linguistic study of the Toponymy (Toponomastics) of this area of the ancient Liguria and is aimed at pointing out the relationships between the population dynamics and the naming process of the places especially in the proto-historic ages.
