This paper addresses the problem of historical change in the provincial backwater of a large premodern empire. It examines the evidence for urban form, cultural identity, political organization, and social hierarchy in Segobriga, an insignificant Roman municipality in central Spain (the province of Hispania Tarraconensis) during the period c. 200 BCE to 200 CE.
