The proposed project aims to provide scientifically valid answers to at least four still unanswered questions related to the degree of impact by the army in the various integration processes of this region between the Mediterranean and Danube in the Roman world.

  1. What role was played by the Roman military in the political, social, cultural, and religious changes in the population and the environment?
  2. What military influence from indigenous people was accepted by the Romans in Illyricum?
  3. What was the degree of the economic dynamics as a direct result of all the changes triggered by the needs of the military forces?
  4. Was the actual degree of integration into the Roman Empire of the region that is today the Republic of Croatia affected by its specific geographical position?
