A province was a geographic area
outside of Italy, ruled by Rome. Provinces were countries or regions
that Rome had conquered.
Rome had many provinces. Each was
valuable to Rome. Rome's provinces provided manpower, taxes, food and
other resources. They also acted as a barrier between Rome and lands
controlled by barbarians.
The provinces were connected to Rome by
a series of Roman
roads. All roads led to Rome.
