      Stephen L. Dyson finds in the experience of the Republic the origins of Roman frontier policy and methods of border control as practiced under the Empire. Focusing on the western provinces during the Republic, he demonstrates the ways in which Roman society, like that of the United States, was shaped by its own frontier. Originally published in. Roman military borders and fortifications were part of a grand strategy of territorial defence in the Roman Empire. Forts, Castra and military camps stretched across the vast empire, in concentration on the borders and in some of the most remote of locations to enforce Roman authority and control. - HeritageDaily - Archaeology News.

      The borders of the Roman Empire, which fluctuated throughout the empire's history, were realised as a combination of military roads and linked forts, natural frontiers (most notably the Rhine and Danube rivers) and man-made fortifications which separated the lands of the empire from the countries beyond. The Shifting Character of the Roman Imperial Frontiers Prof. Elton (Trent University) make a valuable contribution to the unusual field of Roman frontier studies by reminding us that unlike a modern border, that is a sharply delineated line separating two states, the Roman frontier was a fuzzy zone between what was clearly Roman and what was.

The Roman frontier in central Jordan: final report on the Limes Arabicus Project, [S Thomas Parker; John Wilson Betlyon]. The Limes Arabicus was a desert frontier of the Roman Empire, mostly in the province of Arabia Petraea. It ran northeast from the Gulf of Aqaba for about 1, kilometers ( mi) at its greatest extent, reaching northern Syria and forming part of the wider Roman limes system.

It had several forts and watchtowers. I am still amazed that Vindolanda gave us nearly year-old letters between soldiers, friends, and officials on the northernmost Roman frontier.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Vindolanda, the Roman army, classical antiquity, or the power of primary source material/5. That is why the idea which underpins Philip Parker's new book is such an intriguing one: to trace the entire length of what the Romans themselves termed the "limes", the frontier.
