Careful with your proclimations, the Impertaor has eyes and ears everywhere. (I might be one, you never know....)

Sandra,

The atmosphere was great - and the people were totally welcoming... I latched on to the Batavi next to their spiffing altar and Draco to sew tunics for the weekend... it was a magical place and a bunch of top peeps...

PS - Matts flashy tunic is one of my creations Smile

Magical indeed, the camp in the setting sun, and at night (with an added filter :wink: )

Sleeping under the stars where the iron age Brits, Romans, and William the Conqueror walked, a beautiful site with layers of history. I'm longing to go back.
At work today I felt I was the wrong side of C.S. Lewis's wardrobe!!! Cry

That altar was superb- a copy of the Caerwent altar, carved from the limestone in the Roman quarry. And great tunic btw!!

You're all right, the site is damn amazing ! I really love old Sarum and Salisbury's region since the first time. The Atmosphere on Sarum's plate was magic. After Saturday's evening briton choirs I saw shooting stars behind the fortress, it was a wonderful magic night. A pity I'm not a bard because nights at the Sarum are a perfect space-time for poetry after the "tumultus" of the day.

Bye !

Hi lads,

I´ve just joined the forum after returning home from Old Sarum. What a great experience ... even after years of reenactment (in other times including the WW (early Wurstwasser period directly following the wood age :wink: )) there are still some "goose pimple" events. And this was definitive one of them. Great athmosphere, great brotherhood and a really warm welcome for us "newcomers". Thanks to the organizers so as to all other attending groups and single persons to make it to such an event.

Best regards from the Contubernium!
