LEGIO VIII AUGUSTA MGV 69AD – 138ADRoman Military & Civilian Living History SocietySHORT DESCRIPTION

We are based in North Wales
, with members in NW England
, France, Switzerland & Italy as well!
Our website – http://www.roman.org.ukLONG DESCRIPTION
We are a small, but quality, society who have been on the "English Heritage Circuit" for about 15 years or so. We generally do around 10 public shows a year in the UK, plus numerous training days at various strategic locations.
We like to try out new things, rather than sticking to the same old performances year after year, and welcome ideas from new recuits as well as existing members. We make a lot of our own kit, which keeps the quality high, and will help new recruits with loaned equipment until they are able to get their own.
You are free to choose your own role within our society performances, within reason, provided it fits into our period, so whether you want to be a Roman, or one of the resentful and oppressed Britunculi, please get in touch!
