THE VIA NOVA
Importance of the way to communicate Braga and Astorga through the interior. The gold in the region. Emergence of new habitat places and new habits (Baños de Riocaldo).
THE GATES OF THE FORT
Checking point. Watch Point. Control of those outside but also of those inside the fort.
Daily life. Spaces in which food is made, falls asleep, comes to life in common with the other soldiers. In Aquis Querquennis there are interior courtyards: socialization space, games…
THE GENERAL HEADQUARTER
Administrative space: paperwork, officials … in which you can represent the classic bureaucratic mess: for example, a problem with contracts.
Military hospitals are a historic milestone. They are the first representatives of their kind and also indicate that the State ensures the health of the soldiers. Not because they are appreciated, but because they are the only institutional arm of the State and because they are a valuable resource: it takes time to train them.
They indicate the immense effort of military logistics. They involve a collection of goods that determines the rhythms of agricultural production and is related to the payment of two taxes.
