comment Did the roman conquerors have directives/guidelines to either integrate or assimilate foreign tribes/folks?
"they likely didnt allow knuckeld tribes to practice their religion/language". Wrong. Romans, as a matter of policy, generously allowed subdued tribes to practice their religion and to speak their languages. Obedience to the Governor, loyalty to the Emperor and taxes were demanded in return.
