There’s a marvellous video of this year’s Deva celebrations on YouTube. Somewhere in there you may spot the author of the Empire series, Anthony Riches (dressed as a centurion), the Emperor Domitian (being suitably megalomanic) and yours truly. An extra treat was the combination of Saturnalia with the Winter Watch parade, which made for a truly spectacular evening’s entertainment.

That looks like fun, Ruth! Thank you for all your entertaining posts this year, and here’s wishing you and all of us a very happy 2016, or should I say Felix MMDCCLXX A.U.C. Jane (and Aurelia!)
Thank you Jane! All the very best for 2016 – will we be seeing a new Aurelia Marcella mystery? (And incidentally, I hope you’re not underwater right now…)
This is awesome!!!

Isn’t it just? Glad you enjoyed it, Lori!
You Brits do things right.
They certainly do up in Chester, Lora. It was a real honour to be involved.
That was great, thanks, Ruth. I found you in your cloak but at first I though it was Tilla … Happy New Year~ !
And a very happy New Year to you, Jamie!
