Many of the Roman fortifications, built for the defense of the Empire, are still existing. We can find them distributed across the vast empire, in concentration on the borders, in the locations where it was required more authority and military control. Here we discuss the fortifications of the Kharga Oasis in Egypt. In particular, we will discuss the Qasr el-Baramoudy fort, threatened by the motion of the sand dunes.
