Traces of 66 Roman encampments in northern Spain were discovered
Using remote sensing technology, scientists discovered dozens of Roman camps in northern Spain, at the foot of the Cantabrian Mountains, which served the Roman army for training and protection. Moreover, numerous aerial and satellite images were used.
Scientists noticed regular changes in the shape of the terrain that suggested that it might be ditches and embankments made by legionnaires.
The findings will allow researchers to better understand the process of the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula in the 1st century BCE. The location of the camps confirms that the Romans cared for supplies and effective communication between the various divisions.
