Kind of Event
Organised by
the Netherlands

From July 30 to August 14, the Roman weeks are at Archeon for the 23rd time!

Roman legionaries set up camp, accompanied by craftsmen, ladies and children. Visit the Roman encampment, watch the demonstrations and many other activities.  

The Dutch living history group Legiio Secunda Augusta depicts Roman and indigenous life from about AD 50 to 150 through reenactment. Legiio Secunda Augusta has not only soldiers who show the Roman soldier life, but also civilians with their activities such as working leather, making clothes, cooking, laying mosaics and massaging. In addition to the recognizable Roman legionaries, the military department also consists of auxilia, or the auxiliary troops that can come from our region, but also from the many other corners of the Roman Empire.
