More information about Final Jeopardy:
Along its frontiers, the Romans built fortifications called “limes”, similar to many border fortifications today; some parts were ditches, mounds, and stakes, whereas others were forts and watchtowers. The idea was not as much to keep people out, but wanting people to enter the Empire at the watchtowers, as an early warning device of sorts.
Along the northern border, the German lime stretched 350 miles between the Rhine and Danube rivers (the rivers also serving as borders in places).
