A sunny weekend in the park

At the end of June, we pitched our tents for a relaxed Roman weekend in front of the Roman Museum in the Xanten Archaeological Park.

Off to the museum

The last cleaning work has been done and soon our Manuballista will be part of the state exhibition in the Haltern Roman Museum.

Roman Army at your service

The I. ROEMERCOHORTE OPLADEN e.V ("First Roman Cohort of Opladen") is a historical society which aims to reconstruct the equipment, the way of life and the everyday duty of the Roman Army and its civilian surroundings by re-enacting ancient Roman life as authentically as possible. For more than 30 years this has been done by reconstructing several items of daily use, both large and small. Many activities are carried out in cooperation with archaeological museums, where we then present the results of our work to the public.
