Abstract

The study offers a new reading of the fortifications’ development and urban planning of the town of Serdica, made possible as a result of many years of archaeological research in the city and the accumulation of voluminous archaeological and historical material. The accepted hypotheses are summarized and analysed and an attempt is made to place them in the context of the Roman Empire development, the provinces of which Serdica belongs in different historical periods. The stages of contraction and expantion of the built-up urban area and the connection with the fortification structures are traced.
