The iron of the Empire : the production of iron made military equipment in the province of Dacia (AD 106-AD 270)

Abstract : Despite the importance the army had throughout the history of the Roman Empire, and despite the vivid images that immediately come to mind when we think of the legions of Rome, many aspects related to the organizations of the armed forces under the rule of the emperors remain arguably obscure: the production of weapons and armours for Roman soldiers is among them. Aiming to develop a strong theoretical approach for the analysis of this particular aspect of ancient military logistics, this thesis analyses the situation in the Roman province of Dacia (AD 106-AD 270).The conceptual basis and development of Roman military logistics is studied through the combined use of archaeological data, literary sources, and epigraphy. The pattern of military sites, mines, and administrative centres of the ancient province of Dacia is therefore interpreted as the framework in which a complex and multi-layered productive system was implemented and developed.
