Open Access Monograph Series: Frontiers of the Roman Empire

0
0
'These succinct but extremely well-illustrated multi-lingual books are an essential entry point into the many regional variations of Roman frontiers. They serve both an academic/student audience wanting an up-to-date synthesis of the state of knowledge, but also a wider general public. For the latter, the accessibility of the entire series encourages people to look beyond their local region and to explore the phenomenon of frontiers and Roman army deployments across the empire. Another significant value of the series is that it highlights the scale and importance of our evidence of Roman frontiers for policy makers across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, where there is continuing pressure on these heritage landscapes, as well as considerable potential to develop further the Roman Frontiers WHS designation and its geographical scope. David Breeze has done a quite remarkable job in bringing the series to the present point, especially in getting coverage of non-European sectors that are often neglected.'
- David Mattingly, Professor of Roman Archaeology, University of Leicester
