LRE VI - Nijmegen, July 28-August 3
#1
We proudly announce the 6th Late Roman Event, to be held in the Orientalis open air Museum in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, from Monday July 28th till Sunday August 3rd, 2014.

Late Roman groups will once more return life to the Roman street and buildings. The sounds of marching soldiers, but also of playing children (once in a while chased by their mothers) will echo off the freshly painted walls. Several groups from The Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Spain will gather for a whole week close to the ancient Limes of the Roman Empire.

If you can join us, please contact me.

Some pictures of last year's event:

Less than 3 weeks to go to LRE VI, the 6th Late Roman Event in The Netherlands. So far, about 80 participants are expected, with about half of them arriving during the week and the rest on Friday.
Visitors and last-minute volunteers are always welcome!

Some images of the Roman Street where we will occupy the buildings:

What an impressive turn out. It looks great fun and very international, just as the Empire would be.

Congratulations to the organisers.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!
