New recruits
Greetings all!

My name is John DiMauro and I'm from Ballston Lake NY, USA. I'm interested in becoming a Roman reenactor. I've been a reenactor of other time periods (mainly WWII British, Soviet, and Italian) for almost 2 decades now, and have had an interest in Roman History for even longer.

I'm also a member in another Legion - The 501st. We costume as the bad guys from Star Wars. Smile

I'm looking forward to learning quite a bit from you folks!

Cheers!

My Name is Jasper and i'm living in Holland. Very interested in the originated and development of Rome itself, from small tribes to the world power it was. Thinking about joining an re-enacment group in Holland but that is still in an early stage. Hope to learn alot from this forum.

Hi, Jasper if you are looking for a Roman group in the Netherlands there are several options. what period are you looking for?
Maybe I can help you make a choice.

Hello,

So...introductions. My real first name is Cameron, I am curator of collections at the Cranbrook Institute of Science, located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. I have a long academic and athletic interest in martial arts (eastern and western) as well as archery and horsemanship. I have degrees in Anthropology and History with a focus on Great Lakes Native American culture. Despite that focus, the Institute's collections span the globe, so I am a bit of a generalist. With the Institute hosting an exhibit on Ancient Rome, I am putting together some programming for the run of the exhibit. It just so happens to fit nicely into my personal interests. So, for several months my trusty steed and I have been working on javelin throwing, sword and spear work and the like. I am looking to put together a basic 1st century AD auxiliary cavalry impression, and may end up hooking into the local group. Perhaps my son can become my groom/spear carrier. Smile

So, a newbie with a decent background. Happy to accept advice from the experienced crew herabouts.
Cameron

Salvete omnes,

My name is Sean and I am a student of History, Classical Archaeology, and Latin at the University of Michigan. I was actually a member of this forum about four years ago but my account was lost so I thought why not begin anew. My interests include (but are certainly not limited to) the legal and military structure of late Republican/early Imperial Rome, with sub-interests in contact with the Northern European tribes. I will be starting my undergraduate thesis on the influence of Roman military traditions on the "barbarian kingdoms" of Northern Europe - you will be hearing a lot of questions from me regarding that very soon. As I remember many of you are lifelong academics so, although I have another year a half, I will also post quite often on graduate programs and career routes.

Hello

I had been considering joining for some while but got the final nudge from reading Daniel Mersey's book "A Wargamer's Guide to The Early Roman Empire" (or "A Wargamer's Guide to The Early Roman Army" as it says on the spine).  I have been interested in the Roman Army as long as I can remember both as history student and wargamer.

Hi, new member here hoping to get some help regarding the Marian Reforms for my dissertation project. 

I'm a 3rd year ancient history student studying at the University of Nottingham. 

My Dissertation is regarding the extent to which Marius actually was involved in the reforms commonly attributed to him. 

If people could point me towards articles/discussions etc arguing for and against that would be great. 

Yours thankfully Thomas
