It has the potential to inspire a new generation with an interest in Roman Frontier Studies.” – Tony Wilmott, English Heritage, Britannia “Breeze's work is one of the most efficient presentations of the Roman frontiers in Britain.

The primary reason, it seems to me, that Roman frontier studies have acquired a poor standing among archaeologists is that in our post-colonial world the colonialist, imperialist and violent nature of the Roman Empire renders its study repugnant, an attitude extended to military history generally (Black ).Author: David Breeze.

Roman military borders and fortifications were part of a grand strategy of territorial defense in the Roman Empire, although this is a matter of the early 2nd century, the Roman Empire had reached the peak of its territorial expansion and rather than constantly expanding their borders as earlier in the Empire and Republic, the Romans solidified their position by fortifying.

"Prof. Elton 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 clearly 'other.'" - Albert Nofi, The NYMAS Review.
