Romans invade Haddington.

It has to be admitted that the latest Romans to invade weren’t all that scary. In fact they seemed like a rather friendly lot, easily put to flight by a crazed mob of barbarian weans.

It all looks like a lot of fun, but there is clearly a lot of work involved in this sort of reconstruction. The gear they use isn’t 1600 years old, but it’s as real as research can make it- and potentially as lethal as the original. Their website is here.
