Abstract: Romanization as a historical phenomenon common to all the territories subjected by Rome has in the middle valley of the Ebro some characteristics common to other territories, but it also has its own characteristics. The romanization of this territory would last two centuries, a very long time for a very accessible, transited and easily communicated area. The war would be the main vehicle of Romanization from its beginning, the beginning of the occupation and the indigenous resistance, until the foundation of Caesaraugusta in a territory that Augustus perceived as convenient, during one of his military expeditions against the Cantabrians and Asturians. . As the middle valley was becoming Romanized, Rome tried to create an urban administrator and councilor of the territory and failed on different occasions; in the first La Cabañeta was devastated in the Sertorian war and in the second the Colonia Victrix Iulia Lepida would be superseded by the rise of Caesaraugusta; which became a small Rome on the banks of the Ebro and the largest Romanizing focus for hundreds of kilometers around. The study of Romanization in the middle valley of the Ebro and specifically in the Zaragoza region is very complex due to the little information provided by ancient sources and the difficulties, of all kinds, including administrative ones, in carrying out archaeological work; Therefore, on many occasions, comparative analyzes of nearby places and with the same historical circumstances must be carried out. This has led to comparative archeology and the study of what was found in the excavations made in the territory, to be the fundamental working method to interpret how Rome and its culture were conquering, displacing and replacing indigenous cultures; converting these Iberians, Celtiberians and Vascones into Romans. A difficulty in this methodology is that of interpreting what has been found, which can pose problems for truths that were considered absolute, but which lead to doubt.
