Cover story: Belisarius and the Reconquest of Africa
After the fall of Rome and the abdication of Romulus Augustus, the Vandals had seized Carthage in 439 and established a powerful kingdom in Africa. But after unsuccessful attempts, the Emperor Justinian sent Belisarius to reconquer the African land, and proceeded to defeat the Vandals and restoree their African provinces, the Balearic Islands, Sardinia, and Corsica.
The natural and artificial borders that protected the Roman Empire ('limes') is a constant topic of research. Among its fortifications, Hadrian's Wall is one of the most famous, followed by the Antonine Wall. Praetorian profiles these amazing walls and their unequal fate.
