Overview

Leonard Curchin explores how, why and to what extent the peoples of Central Spain were integrated into the Roman Empire in the formative period 200 B.C. to A.D. 250.

The study is based on a much-needed synthesis of archaeological and other data which have previously been inaccessible to Anglophone scholars. Curchin approaches the question from a variety of angles, including the social, economic, religious and material experiences of the inhabitants as they adjusted to change, the mechanisms by which they adopted new structures and values, and the power relations between Rome and the provincials. The book also considers the peculiar features of Central Spain that made its Romanization so distinctive.

The work not only calls attention to the rich ancient heritage of a little-known region; it also offers a paradigm of cultural fusion which will be of value to those studying other provinces of the Roman Empire.
