The Romans now arriving

 

Every year in mid-July English Heritage holds the Festival of History at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire. The show covers all periods from the Roman invasion up to post World War 2 with living history displays, re-enactments and custumed characters that walk the site.

 

The Romam soldiers from the Ermine Street Guard had a small encampment and put on a fine display of Roman life in Britain after their invasion.

Les Auld: But could be dangerous Brian, thanks for the comment.
Great shot Les... I really like the red colour in the shields especially. I'd love to see a festival like that one day.
