The western provinces cover a vast area with complex regional patterning. Exploring these provinces, their interactions, discrepant experiences and developments is essential to our understanding of the Roman world. Scholarship on ‘provincial Roman culture’ dates back centuries, but our theoretical and methodological approaches have changed significantly and the evidence now available to study these communities has reached what can seem like unmanageable proportions. Scholars have turned to digital resources to help manage and interrogate this material, but instead of solving our problems they have raised their own. This workshop invites short presentations from those employing digital approaches to help understand the western provinces, in which they will explain their work, share their aspirations and ideas on best practice and describe their frustrations
