Abstract and Keywords

This chapter deals with spatial studies concerning Roman settlement within the area of present-day Germany, paying special attention to the parts of the provinces of Germania Inferior and Germania Superior, as well as the parts of the province of Gallia Belgica and the northern part of the province of Raetia that lie within Germany’s modern borders. It begins with a brief survey of the history of research in ‘rural settlement archaeology’ in general and ‘landscape archaeology’ in particular in Roman Germany from the later 1980s to today. It then considers Roman settlement archaeology in the Lower and Middle Rhine regions, the Moselle region, the northern Rhine region, and the southern Upper Rhine and Neckar region. The chapter concludes by assessing settlement archaeology in northern Raetia.

Keywords: Roman villas, landscape archaeology, settlement archaeology, Roman rural landscape occupation, spatial studies, Germania Inferior, Germania Superior, Gallia Belgica, Raetia
