A Roman villa in a peripheral region. Rural habitation in the area of the Texuandri (Southern Netherlands / Northern Belgium)

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This study presents a synthesis of over 40 years of intensive settlement research in the Roman non-villa landscape of the southern Netherlands and northern Belgium. We are dealing here with a peripheral region with poor sandy soils dominated by small indigenous settlements. A key question is how to explain the presence of a relatively large Roman villa complex in this area. The social model presented here is based on the agency of individuals interacting with the military as well as the urban community in the Lower Rhine frontier zone.
