The Invention of the Germans

Roman Luxury

In order to gain control over the ›barbarians‹ in the first two centuries AD the steady supply of goods from the provinces to free Germania was more important than temporary military campaigns. Luxury goods and comfort of living should impress the locals and arouse the desire to participate in the empire.

Also finds from Saxony-Anhalt illustrate Roman luxury and splendour.
