Our Legio I Adiutrix, led by praefectus K. Quirinius Dasius which is garrisoned in Provincia Dacia

The reenactment legions of Nova Roma serve as honor guards at our public events, and educational action groups spreading knowledge about Roman history and material culture as evidenced by archaeology, and also about Romanitas in general: Roman religion, culture and virtues. Reenactment legions fulfill the sacred mission of honoring Roman military tradition, the world-conquering Roman virtues, the memory of Roman ancestors who lived and died in the military.

Reenactment performances are important ceremonial tributes (a particular type of ritual indeed), which bring back and honor the memory of the Roman people, Roman culture and cultus, while offering excellent living history educational service to the wider audiences of festivals, museums, archaeological parks and other venues.
