Abstract

The chapter describes terrestrial routs that defined the human spatiality over a broad territory of Balkan Peninsula throughout centuries. Along the northern, eastern and western frontier of the Peninsula, by following the rim of the Panonian Plain, the Pontic, Aegean, Ionic and Adriatic coastline, the roads were constructed defining the frame within which all important and local communications would spring up connecting numerous settlements and fortifications. This network of traffic ways, the construction of which lasted throughout Roman mastery of the Balkan Peninsula was somewhat extended and restored at the time of emperor Justinian and was to be used throughout entire Middle Ages
