The kingdom of Hatra during the second and third centuries AD: frontiers, ecological limits, settlements and landmarks
During the second and third centuries AD the Kingdom of Hatra became an important buffer state in a strategic location between the Parthian, Roman, and later, Sasanian Empires. This paper defines the extent of this large and complex territory by employing interdisciplinary methodology, and through the use of archaeological, historical and epigraphical data to better assess its hinterlands, reconstruct its settlement patterns and evaluate the ecological potential of the area.
