Soldiers from the Roman Army re-enactment society return to Fishbourne Roman Palace.
Roman Army Weekend this summer at Fishbourne Roman Palace
The sounds of swords clashing, shields banging and trumpets blaring can be heard at Fishbourne Roman Palace & Gardens this summer as the Ermine Street Guard set up at camp in the grounds of this Roman home north of the Alps.
Over the weekend of 30th – 31st July, visitors can travel back 2,000 years in time to when the Romans ruled Britain, as soldiers from the Roman Army re-enactment society will be giving displays in the Palace’s formal garden, shooting artillery and providing live demonstrations of how the Roman Army prepared for combat.
There will also be a range of Roman-themed activities on offer throughout the weekend and visitors can explore the mosaics and recreated grounds at the Roman home, which dates back to 75 AD.
