People from across the world have for decades come together to reenact historical military and civilian life at various periods in time. A large number of these are dedicated to the Roman era. The level of historical detail required varies from Legion to Legion, and some engage in mock combat while others display their prowess at period drill and camp life. As part of our efforts to bring ancient Rome back to life, Nova Roma sponsors the activities of various Legions across the world.
The Sodalitas Militarium of Nova Roma is devoted to the study of making war, as well as cataloging, modeling and re-enacting the great Military Forces that were Rome's. More information can be found on the Sodalitas Militarium page.
Nova Roma has, from its beginning, sponsored reenactment units throughout the world. Benefits include citizenship, a listing on this page, and web server space. For more information, or to apply, please see the Legio Sponsorship Application Form. Legions we currently sponsor can be found at Legiones.
