As an exciting season for the Romanorum show draws to a close, we would like to say a big thankyou to all of our members, clients and friends for a great year. Our group and efforts now boast 15 riding members, an infantry presence and also a fascinating living history display, quite unrivalled in this country.
We are the largest roman cavalry group in the country and can now display cavalry from early to late. We also have our enemies of rome slot, in this we can now give our audiences a taste of the type of oponent our soldiers would have fought from Persian knights to Anglo saxon warriors to Celtic chariots - shown again in great detail and the highest level of authenticity!
We hope to continue to educate and entertain people throughout what promises to be a busy 2013 season and are already planning our winter training season for this. Anybody interested in joining our team please contact us.
Planned for the future:
- Continuation of the Arsaco-Sasanian project with Nadeem Ahmad, to include impressions from the 1st Century BC through to the 8th Century AD, cavalry, infantry, and civilian, as well as a stunning royal living history display. This will be the most comprehensive and authentic re-enactment display of antique Iranian culture worldwide.
- Continuation of the 1st Century Sarmatian cataphract project with Steve Rogers, who plans eventually to cover not only himself but his horse all over with brass scales - that will be quite a sight (bring sunglasses)!
- An amazing infantry display showing archery, javelin and axe throwing, and even some combat (which will be rather varied)
- And of course, the skills of our riders and our riding display will continue to impress crowds and improve even further. We will be putting on displays from the early and late Roman periods.
If anyone is interested in joining into any of our projects or hiring us, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
