Frontiers of the Roman Empire
The Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site was created in 2005 and at present consists of Hadrian’s Wall, the German Limes and the Antonine Wall. However, the idea behind the FRE is to represent the border line of the Roman Empire at its greatest extent in the 2nd century AD. It stretched over 5,000 km from the Atlantic coast of northern Britain, through Europe to the Black Sea, and from there to the Red Sea and across North Africa to the Atlantic coast. The remains of these frontiers are those of walls, ditches, forts, fortresses, towers, and civilian settlements. Some elements have been excavated, some have been reconstructed, and a few have been destroyed.
