Modeling Cross-Cultural Interaction in Ancient Borderlands

Following the Roman conquests in Europe west of the Rhine River in the 50s BC and south of the Danube in 15 BC, a frontier zone was established that was to endure for 500 years. Written sources yield limited information about interaction through merchant ventures and diplomatic missions. But archaeological evidence provides a vast amount of data about the geography, character, scale, and chronology of interactions between individuals and communities on the two sides of the border. Using the Cross-Cultural Interaction Model, this paper explores the evidence for interaction in four identifiable zones ranging from Roman bases on the edge of the empire through a frontier region and an outer rim to new centers established far beyond the imperial boundaries.
