The Deisi, the Irish of Dyfed (5th-7th centuries)

This isn't so much a reenactment group (as i'm a member of an established one) but more of a quest for like minded individuals. After many years of reenactment, I finally decided to recreate the persona I had always wanted to do. Here it is the Deisi of Dyfed. Please feel free to have a look at my f...

Re: Getting Started- Roman Soldier

3rd century is a very interesting period, I know loads of 1st century types (myself included) who would love to do it but to be honest the only group I know who does are very small and mainly work in the north of England. If you could step back a hundred years or more, there are a lot more options f...

Re: New Group Ratae Militia

Thanks,
Being from Kettering you'll appreciate the rich Late Roman envoiriment in and around the East Midlands. Places such as Castor, Highcross and Water Newton and the numerous villa sites that when the empire told them" to look to their own defences" they most likely did just that.

Re: Roman/Iron age recruiting?

Thanks Dixie, its a shame that a large Roman City such as Leicester doesn't have a Roman group when its chocks full of Roman and iron age history. Previously home of the infamous ninth legion. Hopefully we can get something off the ground. I have sent you a PM bad viking. :thumbup:

Re: Where are the reenactment groups

Hello, i reenact as a 1st century Auxillary and have been doing it on and off for about 20 years. Whilst this is a cracking forum the best place to chat to Roman types is Roman army talk.
