  Different Frontiers, Yet Alike

Just some pics. :)

The landscapes through which the Hadrian's Wall and the German Limes run are different, though alien to the Romans in both cases. But the Romans brought their norm-sized forts, milecastles and watch towers to Britannia as well as Germania.

I don't think I've ever commented here, Gabriele, but I've always meant to tell you that I enjoy seeing the pictures that you post on your blog. :)

Thanks for commenting on my RTB post!
 
Hi May, thank you for visiting and your kind words.

This one is a lazy post, lol. Usually I post pics with some more historical explanation, but I have some 2000 pics in my folders, so I sometimes just share a few. :)
 
Yay Pictures, I was just talking to a blog buddy yesterday about your wonderful photos of Hadrian's Wall. We were both saying how we felt homesick for England. :)
 
Just. Beautiful.
 
Thank you, Ann and Bernita.

I'm not even from Britain, but I still feel homesick sometimes. :)

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes from Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and the Baltic States. You may also find the odd essay about Geology, Mediaeval literature, and some poetry translations.

All texts (except comments by guests) and photos (if no other copyright is noted) on this blog are copyright of Gabriele Campbell.
