The Roman Limes – frontiers of the Empire - The Local

The Roman Limes – frontiers of the Empire - The Local | Ancient Rome | Scoop.it

As the summer holidays approach, The Local is touring Germany's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Today we visit the historic Roman Limes.

 

The Upper-Germanic Roman Limes covers a total distance of 550 kilometres. Around 2,000 years ago its forts, watchtowers, walls and palisades protected the mighty Roman Empire from independent Germania.

It is the longest and one of the most impressive archaeological monuments in Europe, marking the frontier where the highly developed civilisation of ancient Rome met 'barbaric' Germania.

The Limes run from Bad Hönningen/Rheinbrohl on the River Rhine to the Regensburg area on the River Danube. Alongside Roman remains preserved in their original condition, there are restored buildings, excavations and reconstructions. The course of the border wall can still be made out in places as it stretches in long, straight lines across forests and pastureland.

abigail's curator insight, November 23, 2013 3:15 AM

the scientists bring about new information all the time with their new discoveies creating more questions .. but overall we learn more when new sites are excavated like these ancient aqueducts in rome ..

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 1:50 PM

The mission was for Vicovaro and his team to go down access wells and clamber through crevices to access.These eleven aqueducts were built in ancient Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometers underground. It is interesting how modernized this system was. You wonder how long this took to build the aqueducts to build, considering the limited technology they had. This provides evidence of their engineering skills.
