Here is the link to a just published research article (in English) on the genetic structure of the population of Iberia, both historically and in recent time (about 1900). Genetics history is organized in vertical bands running from north to south. The article also has an interesting discussion of a similar banding for liguistic features. While a research article is far from easy reading for lay audiences, the RESULTS section is relatively accessible.

Below is a published summary in Spanish, intended for a general audience. English speakers who do not read Spanish may wish to use Chrome as their browser and right click on the text pf te article, and then select “Translate to English.”

I think the Google translation is good enough to get the general sense of the links I posted, but I wouldn't consider any AI translation as good in the sense of complete accuracy, or doing well with nuance , idioms, specialized vocabulary, etc. For literary value, professional academic translators can be quite good.

Here are links to the original text and a decent translation of Gabriel García Máarquez's story Un señor muy vejo con alas enormes. See what you think.
