!e Pannonian area and the northern parts of modern Serbia belong to a wider geographical area that can be designated as the Middle and Lower Danube Valley. Over centuries, the Danube and the Sava rivers have connected this region with Central Europe and Italy to the west, and the eastern parts of the Balkans and the Black Sea to the east. !e valleys of the Morava and Vardar rivers offered a connecting channel with the Mediterranean world. A*er the conquest of this territory in the process of Roman expansion in the 1st century AD and the establishment of Roman administration in the newly-created provinces, organised urbanisation emerged, alongside autochthonous rural se"lements, which continued to exist for some time.
