Robert - was someone shooting at you? Is that an arrow in the ground next to you in the first picture?

I would have requested snowballs instead of "live ammunition." Big Grin

Well spotted! Big Grin It's actually a plumbata (I have another one tucked in the belt). I had been posing with that one but stuck it in the ground for more shots. We were a bit in a hurry because my son was getting very cold..

Due to global warming (Or in spite of) our comrades in Sardinia at Castrum Romano La Crucca had a recent opportunity to reenact in the snow a little.

Here's some of me looking suitably heroic back in '09.

Here's the temperature at base camp, a balmy -16c! Sadly it got cold a bit colder on top of the mountain.

Minutes later my legs fell of below the knee. Darwinism in action!

I thought a modicum of scruffy facial hair was near compulsory for British arctic chic.

Nice looking kit Tim, you look like you belong in the wilderness. It looks very functional. I like the 'hand wrappings' too!

The snow makes a nice change from the sunny day reenactments I usually see.

Though I see far too many skeletons to find that iceman appealing hahah

A lost soldier returns to the Castrum only to find it abandoned. In the end he finds that one loyal friend remains.
