Abstract and Keywords

This chapter summarizes the contributions to this handbook. It notes the limitations a book conceived from a perspective on Roman Germany that emphasizes unilaterally the provinces of Germania Inferior and Germania Superior as well as Germania Magna. However, it acknowledges that the handbook has successfully dealt with current trends in German scholarly research on these areas in a comprehensive way, especially for northern and western Germany. It further suggests that this German scholarship has attracted much less attention in Britain in recent years. Were the reciprocal interest in new results obtained in the respective provinces in Britain and Germany to increase, then comparative studies on all aspects of life in the imperial period of the British and Germanic provinces would once again offer great research opportunities.

Keywords: Roman Germany, Roman research, Roman archaeology, Britain, Germania
