  • In the last two decades, the increasing availability of geospatial datasets has transformed Roman Military Archaeology in NW Iberia. As a result, not only several new sites have been documented, but also their distribution is now more homogeneous across the territory, including regions such as Galicia and Northern Portugal, formerly misrepresented. During the 2015-2018 period, the research of the Roman group have moved from the detection of new sites by using remote sensing techniques to their systematic ground survey, enabling us to propose new historical narratives about the extension of the Roman state in NW Iberia. The eagerness for scientific dissemination has also been a constant, following a thorough outreach strategy based on the principles of open science: by designing methodologies for both communication and audience analysis we can understand the social impact of the archaeological research according to different parameters.
