Hi Mick

Welcome. I know what you mean about Arbeia, no matter where I live I can not seem to get away from it. I have many haunting memories of it when I was little. I used to live at the bottom of baring street when i was in infant school and I remember my first school visit there. The museum building was full of skulls then. Over the years of my life I have been lucky to have worked there.

Hi All,
Another Newbie and by chance I also grew up near Arbeia. Maybe that place had more effect than I first thought.
Up until this year I had never done any kind or Re-enactment and if I'm honest I had resigned myself to being dragged around the country by my husband with a group of, well, weirdos.
How wrong I was! I've found myself hooked after just the first event.
Unfortunatly I never really paid any attention to history at school so now I'm really having to work hard to learn my stuff. This site is a god send!

We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Hi Everyone

I am another Newbie to the group. I have recently returned from holidaying in Roma. I already had an interest in Roman history including military and mythology but having spent 10 days in Roma I am completely hooked. I was able to go to a Gladiator School not far from the colosseum and was able to undergo some Gladiator training which was really cool. I have come back to the UK with a hunger to learn more and possibly join a re-enactment group in the UK.

Thought I would say Hi and if anyone knows of any re-enactment groups in the North-West of England could they me know.

Thanks.
