To Tiberius Iulius Draco, True but to be fair the Dacians were constantly breaking imperial treaties and manning raids south of the Danube. I am inclined to think that while money was defiantly a huge factor, the cost of keeping troops along the border and the idea to defend against constant attac...

I guess it all depends on what "civilization" exactly means according to you. By the way, nice username, reminds me of someone I know :wink: . Vale bene, Well by "uncivilized" i meant in this case "barbaric" by roman standards (foreign tribe-organized people). ...

Aldus Marius, have you seen ruins of dacian cities? Dacians were not like germanic tribes... They had huge forts, stone walls, they were already civilized peacefully by the greeks through commerce and connection. There were several greek colonies in eastern Dacia and at the capital there was a very ...

Rennaissance in Dacia

I've been wanting for quite some time now to hold a nice roman re-enacting festival with legionnaires, crafting tents, etc. Thing is i know no re-enactors or smiths at least to start my own crew... So my question is, what groups are there in Europe (the closer to Romania, the better). I'll search fo...

From what i know Evocati are soldiers who finished the obligatory military duty and chose or were offered to remain in the army. I envision them as something similar to the earlier Triarii...

I wish to underline that most sagitarii were of asian (middle-east) or indo-iranian (sarmatian) and i dunno if in the 2 dacian cohorts they had archers, but what i do know that dacians were some of the best archers, axe-throwers and swordsmen (look below why). So although cretan archers may be some ...

I'd disagree that Romans were liberators... For example, they came in Dacia for political reasons (gold mines, lush lands, strong work-force) and also for the megalomania of Trajan (who wanted the fame of conquering these tough, strong and wise people). After conquering Dacia through force they dest...
