Roman influence in Denmark

Vidste du? Posted on Tue, November 18, 2014 13:51:44

From a member of the Legion!

Horsens Museum, Denmark, you can find things, such as kitchen wares, a
complete Hamata in bits and a Pugio. All this was found in the same
area. It proves that there were close contacts between the residents of the area around Horsens and the Roman Empire.

It is very possible that the Hamata belonged to a man who served as an
auxiliary soldier in Roman army. One can speculate why these items ended
up in Denmark, to be found in a grave. It is therefore very convincing
that this man indeed was a Roman auxiliary. As Danish Roman Re-enactors
we often, get the question from the audience, “Why are you Danes dressed
up as Romans and not Vikings? The Romans never were in Denmark.” Well
that is true, but there were close contacts with Roman Empire of some
sort. People here took the items with them in their graves. The things
were not spoils of war. If so they would have been cut to pieces. These
people clearly loved all things, Roman.

Denmark has the
largest and best preserved collection of Roman weapons in the world. Now
that is indeed a very good and plausible reason why we have a Roman
Re-enactment group in Denmark.

A trip to Roman Britain

Nyt fra romergruppen Posted on Sat, October 26, 2013 22:12:23

Another trip to Roman Britain.

We spent our holidays i Britain again. Two years ago we walked along Hadrians Wall on the very edge of the Roman Empire. This year we walked the Cotswolds Trail. Our walk started in Sulis Minerva(Bath) The Roman bath in Bath is a must see for every Roman enthusiast. The museum is great and provides a fantastic audioguide which keeps you at the museum for hours.
Later on we took a little detour to Cirencester. Cirencester has an amphitheater hidden under grass and earth but you can walk around and across it and it still is a fabolus experience. The town was only second to London in Roman times. The pictures of the horseman are from the townmuseum.
We spent the last days in Portsmouth and visited the new Mary Rose museum. Portchester is one of the Roman Saxon shore forts and it is only a short busride from Portsmouth. Unfortunately we did not have time to see Butser Ancient Farm or the Roman villa at Fishbourne or Maiden Castle.
