This site is dedicated to a very particular hobby... reconstructing Roman Legionary equipment for the Second Augustan Legion's advance into the ancient British Westcountry.

It involves a great deal of travel, study, handwork and occaisonal fun!!

Making a Box

This post shows the beginning of a new project - a box copied from original pieces found in Augst, Switzerland.

We haven't decided quite what it will be used for yet, but the design was just too much fun not too copy. The piece features a cheerful looking duck on the bronze top plate.

I'll post some more pictures when we're done.
