Carry on Romans

Unfortunately, my re-enactment group is no longer taking part in the York Roman Festival. We were supposed to be camping in the Yorkshire Museum Gardens this weekend, but the offer was withdrawn for some reason :-( It doesn't make sense. They've got other groups coming up from down south, and as far away as Hungary, but they haven't got the home team. And what's more we are Late Romans - they make a great thing about Constantine being declared Emperor here, but end up with early Romans saluting Constantine's statue outside the Minster. What a joke. So, my next mosaic outing will be at the Festival of History, Kelmarsh, Northants, 13th-14th August.

Thank you :-) I'm really looking forward to Kelmarsh - it's a huge event, with plenty to see, and well worth attending

I'd love to see you in a re-enactment, Alex! :o)
Shame it didn't happen at York. Shame on them for not letting your group be a part of the day.

regards
Anne.
