Eboracum Roman Festival 2022 Posted on 28 Jun 20224 Aug 2022 by Ruth After a gap of 2 (or 1600) years, depending on how you view it, the Romans were back in York last weekend. It was a joy to spend time with visitors, Romans, readers, writers and even the occasional barbarian. A few pics and possibly a snip of video will follow: What are you doing for the next 20 years? Why not join these friendly soldiers in the Roman army? The Centurion will tell you what to do. Very clearly. Travel to exotic foreign lands. Weapons training will be provided. Plus plenty of marching. Help to train new recruits. The Medicus of Legion XX is fully equipped to deal with any injuries. Enjoy leisure with comrades… …or alone. You will get a splendid diploma when you retire. Many years after you are gone, people will come to the Yorkshire Museum to admire it. And people like this will write about you. Simon Turney, Paul Chrystal, Alex Gough, Nancy Jardine, Alison Morton, me, Jane Finnis, Edwin Pace. (Not pictured – Clive Ashman.) If you still can’t decide, come to Colchester on 30/31 July, when we will try again to persuade you. Share this:TwitterFacebook Related

Hi Edna, Glad you enjoyed it! Hope you had a good drive back. Trains were fine on Monday thanks, and I went home with a much lighter suitcase. 😁👍 xx
I loved your wry comments on the Eboracum festival photos, Ruth. Wish it were possible to join you on the 30th for Part II of the celebrations. Salus et bonam fortunam tibi!
