Survey of Events in 2003

<br>
Saluete commilitones,<br>
<br>
It's official: the second edition (the first one was in Albano Laziale) of the Roman legions event will be on 17-18 May 2003 within the Ostia antica archeological area, Roma.<br>
<br>
We'll have many europeans groups from Caesar to the V century AD, archers, six cavalrymen, artillery, a roman 15 tents camp.<br>
<br>
We'll do 2,5 hours of display, explanations and battles, two times per day, for a two days event. (16 May for the groups arriving)<br>
<br>
Of course, even if I'd love to have the most roman soldiers possible and you all, the budget forced me to stop the number at about 120-140 maximum, and that figure is already fulfilled by<br>
the confirmed europeans groups (about 160-170 available men). So, sadly I cannot do further invitations. Anyway if anyone is interested could write to me at the same( [email protected] ): if anyone will<br>
renounce at the last minute, they will can take their places.<br>
<br>
Just after the event, since 21 May 2003 to 13 June 2003, we will do a roman legions equipment (reconstructed pus some originals) exhibition at the Vittoriano compound Museum on the Capitolium in Roma.<br>
<br>
Both event and exhibition entrance will be free at all and for all.<br>

Hi Marcus,<br>

WELL,<br>
<br>
You're right, of course, BUT, I can say in my defence that a) I'm not finished at the moment, but I made several promises (didn't I, Aitor?) so I went ahead with what I had at the moment. I mean to add small pictures per group, you se. And, b), there won't be as many links to groups who do Principate, whereas I want to include all who Tetrarchy. So some may be left out (thereare so many!). Gemina will be included though, never fear, if only because you guys are Dutch as well.<br>

just to inform all the members that on next 24th august 2003, on the anniversary of the distruction of Pompei by the Vesuvio volcano, the Gruppo Storico Romano, on an invitation of the direction of the site and the Archeologycal Survey Office of Pompei, will reenact inside the wonderful site of the ancient city and exhibit.<br>
It will be the first time that someone reenact inside Pompei and people get inside in roman costume after 2000 years.<br>
Parade, normal life along the streets, gladiator combats and so on will be performed at the sunset in the enchanting site.<br>

My group, the Cohors Prima Gallica will organize on next September (13th and 14th) the second edition of our Roman festival, the 'Ludi Veleienses'.<br>
The place will be our Roman archaeological site, Iruña/Veleia (not Iruña/Pamplona!), near Vitoria, Basque Country (Northern part of Spain).<br>
All Romans will be welcomed!<br>

It\'s all an accident, an accident of hands. Mine, others, all without mind, from one extreme to another, but neither works nor will ever.

just to remind all the reenacters and non, passing via Naples on next 24th august 2003 that at 5,30 pm, in the wonderful archeologycal site of Pompei, the Gruppo Storico Romano will parade and exhibit along the streets inside the site.<br>
70 and more reenacters will fill up the site with roman people, like it was 2000 years ago.<br>
And it will be on 24th august, the anniversary of the Vesuvio Volcano eruption that in 79 AD destroyed the city.<br>
