How far did Roman rule extend?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How far did Roman rule extend?       
How far did Roman rule extend? At its peak, the Roman Empire extended all around the Mediterranean - into Syria, Israel, parts of Turkey, most of Europe and the Balkan regions. A huge army was needed to maintain control over these regions, and the costs were tremendous.

There were continual minor wars and skirmishes along the edges of the Empire, which meant that large garrisons of soldiers had to be maintained.

The disciplined Roman armies developed special weapons and techniques to overcome the tribes they encountered as the empire expanded. This 'tortoise' formation proved impregnable against their Celtic foes.
