    For the past two years, the Legion has enjoyed working with the Getty Villa, providing living history demonstrations and fashion shows. We are pleased to announce that we will be back this spring for two very special events. The first event will be a recreation of a Roman wedding during the weekend of May 25-26 and the second event will be a coin demonstration tying in with the Getty Villa’s Sicilian exhibit on the weekends of June 8-9 and 22-23. Join us to see how the ancients literally ‘tied the knot’ and to see how ancient coins were made.
    Fabricae

    The first group workshop events of the year have been extremely productive, with members producing new arms and armor for the upcoming re-enacting season. Our March Fabrica saw the production of several new auxiliary and legionary shields as well as the refurbishment of existing shields. Be sure to read Dave Michaels’ article on how to edge a Roman scutum, in which he details the technique developed during our Fabricae to edge legionary shields with rawhide. While the men worked on shields, Lorie Ann Hambly and Lisa Klassen-Barnes took a trip to San Pedro where they met with the organizers of Old Fort MacArthur Days and mapped out the Legion’s campsite for the military timeline event coming up on the weekend of July 13-14. We’ll be out in force with a great campsite and big plans for one of our favorite events.
