A reconstructed Roman fort. Roman legions kept order. Under the Roman Empire, administration of peaceful provinces was the responsibility of the Senate but those, like Britain that required permanent garrisons of troops, were placed under the Emperor's control. Resident governors (former senators) were installed, selected for their records of military success and administrative ability. As well as military control, they were responsible for numerous other tasks such as maintaining diplomatic relations with local client kings, building roads, ensuring the public courier system functioned and acting as a judge in important legal cases. An adviser assisted him in legal matters.
