AbstractThese sessions offer an archaeological as well as historical approach to Roman border regions. We define these territories as complex areas of interaction, combining both Roman and non-Roman elements, differing from the Imperium and the Barbaricum. Frontier zones and societies saw a specific regional and local milieu in the Near East, North Africa, Britain or along the Danube and the Rhine. Are there supra-regional similarities, are the socio-political conditions all too different?
