Romanization: Interaction, Conquest and Change in Late Roman and Iron Age Dacia (ARC3404)

15 credits

The case study used throughout will be the area of Dacia on the Lower Danube which, as the only province to be conquered through warfare in the second century AD, offers a unique opportunity to assess that impact on neighbouring cultures and on conquered territories when Rome was at the height of her power. Through extensive comparison with provinces conquered previously, the module will also address the changing character of the Roman approach to conquest and administration.
