We'll be welcoming back the world renowned Ermine Street Guard reenactment group to Roman Vindolanda for their 50th birthday celebrations on 27th & 28th August 2022.

There will be:

Roman Army School

Learn how to be a Roman soldier! Get dressed as a Roman soldier, learn a few commands, march in time and complete formations. Cameras at the ready - this is a great photo opportunity. 


Military displays and demonstrations of armour, artillery and technique on the fort site at 11:30am & 2:30pm each day.

Roman encampment

See how Roman shoes are made, have a coin minted for you, see some of the tools and kit a Roman soldier would have to carry with him!

We strongly recommend booking your tickets and an arrival window for this event. Those without a pre-booked times may be turned away if we have reached capacity. This event weekend is now available to book through our Visit Us page.
