The present volume began as a conference entitled “Viae Romanae – Roman Roads: New evidence – new perspectives” and the resulting book does not stray from its origins. Its size—19 contributions in English (11), German (5), French (2), and Italian (1), each with English and German abstracts— is a result of its broad remit: to take a fresh look at Roman roads in the less well studied Roman provinces. Whatever their geographical focus, most essays fit into one (or more) of the following general themes: 1. (Routes) finding the course of roads, 2. (Responsibility) identifying road builders and their intentions, and 3. (Road users) illustrating aspects of life along the road. Supporting these themes are three consistent sources of evidence: 1. Literary sources, 2. Maps, itineraries, and periploi, and 3. Milestones. There is also a clear relationship between the variety of evidence and the range of interpretive frameworks in which it is deployed, such that three constant explanations for road building (or milestone installation, which are sometimes conflated) emerge: military expansion, commercial enterprise, or imperial propaganda.
