"Good morning Eboracum. When we left , 1700 years ago, we said we'd be back. Well. Here we are, a little late maybe, but here we are."
The opening words from the Roman compere when introducing the Legions at the Eboracum Roman Festival on Sunday. The re-enactors are mainly showing the uniforms of around year 125 AD, with a few from 400 AD 9those with the trousers and round shields). The running order was a parade and a march through York, a display of birds of prey, the Romans returned to Museum Gardens for a display of drill and sparring. All great fun.
Here are some of my photos.
