Rank-Size Analysis and the Roman Cities of the Iberian Peninsula and Britain
This chapter focuses on two specific geographic areas of the Roman empire, Britain and the Iberian Peninsula, corresponding to the provinces of Britannia, Baetica, Tarraconensis, and Lusitania. The aim of this study is to analyse if and to what extent the rank-size rule can be applied to the archaeological data available and to offer some preliminary considerations on cities and towns in these provinces concerning their size and discuss, through the lens of the rank-size analysis, how the two provinces compare with each other and with other historical periods.
