Historical background

CELTIC DANUBE - Noricum - Noricum

(Second-first century BC)

Based on the work of W. Kruta, we can say that the kingdom of Noricum was formed in the mid-second century BC, the territory of the present-day Carinthia. With the Pannonian Boii and Taurisci, they certainly formed a powerful kingdom in the north-east of Italy and were a major Celtic training at the periphery of the Alps. This entity enjoyed its greatest expansion in the first century BC and extended to the Danube on the eastern part of the Alps. The conquest undertaken by Augustus was only completed under Tiberius and Drusus.
