After working for the department of Archaeology at the University of Durham in 1968–9, Breeze was appointed an Assistant Inspector of Ancient Monuments in the Ministry of Public Building and Works, rising to be Chief Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Historic Scotland between 1989 and 2005.[1] He is an honorary professor at the University of Durham, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and the University of Stirling.[3]

He led the team which resulted in the Antonine Wall being ascribed as a World Heritage Site in 2008, and formed part of the group which created the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site, of which this is the first multi-national example. He also chaired the Culture 2000 project Frontiers of the Roman Empire (2005–08). He is editing with Sonja Jilek a multi-language series of books on the frontiers of the Roman Empire. Published so far are volumes on the Roman limes in Hungary (2008), the lower Danube limes in Bulgaria (2008), Slovakia (2008), The Danube Limes: A Roman River Frontier (2009), the Antonine Wall (2009), Hadrian’s Wall (2011), the Danube limes in Austria (2011), North Africa (2013), Serbia (2017) and The Lower German Limes (2019), all available on line. The report on his excavations at the Roman fort at Bearsden on the Antonine Wall was published in 2016, with a separate ‘popular’ account shortly afterwards
