Romanisation: Interaction, Conquest and Change in Late Iron Age and Roman Dacia (ARC2408)

15 credits

The case study used throughout this module will be the area of Dacia on the Lower Danube. As the only province to be conquered through warfare in the second century AD, this offers a unique opportunity to assess the impact of that process 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.
