About the series

Historical background

The Pannonian Limes is a 420 km long part of the Danubian Limes which is the line of fortifications of the Roman legion extending along the Danube. Pannonia was the name of a Roman province whose northeastern border was the Danube River. The Roman Empire ruled the region from the middle of the century from the first AD to the fifth century.
The fortresses protected Pannonia from attacks by the barbarians from the north.

The line had different types of positions:
guard towers
Camps for legionnaires (Castrum )
Castles (Castellum)
