I spent the weekend at Dorchester Roman Festival, which was bathed in glorious sunshine the whole time. What a difference it makes! Thanks to Sarah Harbige, of Dorset Area of Outstanding Beauty, who organised it all into such a top class event. I met up with some of Legio II Augusta, who put on some great displays of Roman legionaries and gladiators. Did a couple of talks, sold a few books, met some interesting people and generally had a good time. I wish there were more Roman events on year round! This coming weekend, I have nothing to complain about, though, as I’ll be at the York Roman Festival, which is organised and run by the excellent Keith Mulhearn. Hope to see you there!
