Commander wanted a Legio founded by J. Caesar. Wanted them to be on the Gaellic Frontier. Time period of Legio V is the 1st Century AD (mostly but will cover Caesar's time period)
Brief History since formation: Sep 99 started Legio "on paper". Nov 99 recruited first Legionary (Aquilifer). @ more followed in Dec 99. Feb 00 started assembling suppliers and merchants for gear.
Apr 00 have 5 members. Developed an application for recruits. Apr-Sep 00 6 recruits in development stage. (not full members til they acquire all the basic gear requirements for "active involvement").
Long term goals within 5 years?: To have 20+ Legionary Troops for Renactments. To fully develope our school educational assemblies. We want to be the best Legio on the Field at various reenactment events eg: Roman Days in MD). Also all members fully involved with Nova Roma Cista, Gens etc.)
How did we hear about Nova Roma Sponsorship?: From Nova Roma's site.
What other Reenactment Legios have you had association with?: Legio XX, Matt Amt's Legio (due to mileage Commander is an associate member of XX). Are you associated with SCA or other period Reenactment Societies?: None so far. We are still looking at Legio V joining a reenactment society that best reflects our Legio's concept.
