An ancient region comprising the central Alps during Roman times, spanning parts of the modern countries of Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, and Switzerland with Liechtenstein. NB the Roman administrative province of Raetia, which has its own place resource in Pleiades.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 19 B3 Raetia

See also the Roman province of Raetia (pleiades:981547).

The Raeti who inhabited this region were a confederation of Alpine tribes and they inhabited the central area of Switzerland and the Tyrol from ca. 500 B.C. There are some claims that the Raeti were in some way descended from the Etruscans, but this claim is difficult to substantiate.
