  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 in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
