The main body of this volume is a comprehensive gazetteer of sites in the Roman province of Moesia Superior, providing details of settlement in the Pre-Roman Iron Age, the Roman Empire and in Late Antiquity, as well as full references. Introductory chapters present an analysis of changes in settlement patterns across the period. The author finds little evidence for continuity across the period of the Roman conquest, but argues that changes such as the abandonment of fortified hilltop settlements may already have been in motion in the years prior to the conquest. The role of military vici in economic development through the Roman period is explored and considerable settlement expansion in the Late Antique period discussed.
