Roman Legion


Join us for a re-enactment spectacular at the Caerleon Amphitheatre on 2-3 June. 2000 years ago the Roman army were the greatest fighting force on earth - sweeping across the map with their state of the art weapons, armour, artillery and cavalry. Come and witness the spectacle of the army in action and have a taste of life in this far flung corner of the mighty Roman Empire.

Military Muscle - marching soldiers, artillery and horse cavalry displays.
Birds of Prey – nature’s hunters in action with Black Mountains Falconry.
Talk to our trader about the exotic goods he brings from faraway lands.
Visit our doctor – he’s at the cutting edge of medicine. Yikes!
Follow the latest fashion with a new Roman hairstyle, or get a fake wound to impress your friends with your battle scars.
Meet the Gladiators – the premier league sportsmen of their day.
Sign your little soldiers up for a marching session with the ‘Junior Legion’
Find about more about the science behind the re-enactment from our Archaeologists.
