Frontiers of the Roman Empire is a World Heritage Site of Germany and the United Kingdom. It celebrates the Roman Limes, the border of the Roman Empire at its greatest limits during the 2nd century AD. At its widest, the Roman Empire stretches for a distance from 5,000 km from the Atlantic coast of northern Britain, right through Europe, to extend to the Red Sea and Egypt. The remains of the Roman Limes can be seen today in the ruins of Roman walls, fortresses and settlements.

In Germany, two visible sections of the Roman Limes can be seen. Called the Limes Germanicus, they stretch over a distance of 550 km from the north west part of the country to the Danube. In the United Kingdom, the 118-km long Hadrian's Wall marks the northernmost limits of the Roman territory in Britannia. The northernmost portion of the Roman Limes is the 60-km Antonine Wall built by the Romans in Scotland, under the orders of Emperor Antonius Pius in AD 142.
