This is for a Latin class, but as it has nothing to do with the language, it is more of a social studies question. For homework we had to complete a project on the Roman Empire. One part was to find all of the provinces, label them on a map, find the year they became a province, and give a reason why Rome would want to be there. I found the provinces and the years that they became provinces, but I absolutely cannot find why Romans would want to be in some of the areas. All of the sites I found with Roman history start after they became provinces, and don't give a reason for why they did. Any help would be a big help. Thank you!
You may not find reasons why Rome wanted these provinces, but you may find their economic strengths after they were conquered. Check these sites.
Also try Googling each province using search terms like Roman Gaul economic.
