Finding a Roman Legion near YOU

As you can see from the video...Rome is alive and well...even in the USA.
Would you like to see such an event? Would you like to share such an experience at home, near you? Would you like to be a part of this history. It's possible. Did you know there are Roman Legions near YOU?

I'm not kidding. These wonderful 'living historians' have been a backbone to my research. In other words, they have kept me possible. That means, when I think I have understood what I've read, they explain it and even add details  

Scan the list below and find a legion near you. Check out their website for a campaign, event, experience they share. What a great family experience. You won't believe how fantastic this is until you experience this yourself. Big kids and little kids welcome.

  1. The legion reenactments are certainly something to see in person. What a wonderful resource you have shared with writers :o)

  2. Thanks for such a great blog and links! I've been researching Roman versus British Celts.

  3. Wow, I knew about Civil War and Revolutionary war re-enactors and Highlanders but had no idea about this. For the group in Las Vegas I wonder if they meet up at Caesar's.
