Over time the pool of recruits expanded to Macedonia (Macedonia (Roman province)), Hispania Baetica, Hispania Tarraconensis

In 1957 the remains were by Albert-Félix de Lapparent and Georges Zbyszewski named as a new species of ''Brachiosaurus'': ''Brachiosaurus atalaiensis''. A.F. de Lapparent & G. Zbyszewski, 1957, "Les dinosauriens du Portugal", ''Mémoires des Services Géologiques du Portugal, nouvelle série'' '''2''': 1-63 The specific name (specific name (zoology)) referred to the site, Atalaia (Atalaia (Lourinhã)). It was in 2003 by Octávio Mateus and Miguel Telles Antunes renamed a separate genus: ''Lusotitan''. The type species is ''Lusotitan atalaiensis''. The generic name is derived from ''Luso'', the Latin name for an inhabitant of Lusitania, and Greek Titan (Titan (mythology)), a mythological giant. Roman times The Romans (Ancient Rome) likely came to the Trabancos region in the 2nd century, during the campaigns of Lucius Licinius Lucullus (152 BC), but the area was peripheral to the regions of principal occupation, as well as to the creation of early towns and more importantly, trade routes: most travel routes were in the east of this region, which followed the river Eresma from the town of Coca (''Cauca'', in Roman times) and Matapozuelos village (''Nivaria'' in Roman times), up to Simancas (''Septimanca''); and at the west, for the "Vía de la Plata (Roman road#Spain)" ("silver road"), the most important Roman route in Lusitania Province. Nevertheless, it is known that in the Vallisoletan area, there was several villages that probably are of pre-Roman origin. In fact, the etymology of the word 'Trabancos' suggests a name originating before the Roman occupation. In 1909, Thomas Jeffery died and the leadership of the company passed to his son Charles, who, in 1914, renamed the car the Jeffery in honor of his late father. While successful, Charles Jeffery decided to leave auto making in 1915, following a harrowing ordeal in the sinking of the Lusitania. Jeffery’s wife had purchased a high-quality life preserver prior to her husband’s trip, and it saved his life. However the event also caused Jeffery to re-evaluate his life and priorities, and automaking wasn’t one of them; he sold the Jeffery concern to Charles Nash (Charles W. Nash), who renamed the concern the Nash Motors Company (Nash Motors). World War I Civil Defense truly began to come of age, both worldwide and in the United States, during the first World War (World War I)--although it was usually referred to as ''civilian defense.'' This was the first major Total war, which required the involvement and support of the general population. Great Britain was subjected to bombing raids by both dirigibles and airplanes (fixed-wing aircraft), resulting in thousands of injuries and deaths. Attacks on non combat ships, like the Lusitania, presented another threat to non combatants. The British responded with an organized effort which was soon copied in the US. This was formalized with the creation of the Council of National Defense on August 29, 1916. Civil defense responsibilities at the federal level were vested in this council, with subsidiary councils at the state and local levels providing additional support—a multi-level structure which was to remain throughout the history of United States civil defense.
