It is proposed to study the territorial exploitation strategies and the structuring and occupation of the rural landscape in ancient times from the perspective of Landscape Archaeology. To do this an analysis of specific territories within the geographical area of the urban phenomenon in the Antiquity and its territorial establishment, placing special emphasis on the evolutionary phenomenon and the heritage it left engraved on the territory, an unquestionable determining factor for the future. Thus, the project has a diachronic aspect, spanning the time from the beginning of the Iberian period (7th-6thc. BC) to the Late Antiquity (6th-7th-c. AD). And an interdisciplinary aspect, focusing on three areas of research: the historical forms of the territory, the exploitation and occupation methods of the environment, and the diachronic reconstruction of the medium itself and the anthropic impact. In the chosen geographical area-the northeast of the Tarraconenesis-the city of Tarraco is determining and stands out as the provincial capital. The research will be organised into micro-regional studies. Various areas are proposed that will allow the provincial capital, with the aim of characterising the dynamics that lead to the formation of the urban centres and conglomerations and the way in which their surrounding territory was organised in the context of the Romanisation od Mediterranean Hispania Citerior. The results will better our knowledge of the territorial establishment of the ancient towns, their impact on the landscape dynamics and their significance for the present-day landscape. The study of these territories is also relevant to learning about the territorial exploitation strategies in the Antiquity and the transition to the Middle Ages focusing on the activities of farming, stockbreeding mining and metallurgy (&)
