Roman border at Walldurn, Germany

Around 100CE the Odenwald region became the location for the frontier wall of the Roman Empire which was built under Emperor Trajan (98-117). Around sixty years later the border was pushed around 30km further east to the Miltenberg–Walldürn–Buchen-Osterburken line.  The ruins and locations of these forts can be visited today and can be seen in the accompanying film!
