Patrol on the coast in Brittany

Postby Morcant on Sun Feb 21, 2010 11:38 pm

Some pictures from a coastal march we did last october. We walked a few hours in one of Brittany's most beautiful landscape, the Crozon peninsula, near Lostmarc'h where stands a protohistoric promontory fort.

We portray late 5th century Britons settled in western Armorica, organised as a late roman unit, as attested by Procopius writings. A good reason to patrol the coast of the Tractus armoricani to repel any saxon pirate! We also have a Pictish auxiliary as you can see. I also have a project of doing a 5-6th century AD early irish impression in the future.

Salvete Omnes!

You look fantastic, well done ;) . I've often thought of doing late Roman, who knows maybe someday I'll get the chance. I notice some of your hasta heads have ball points, do you fight with them? By the way, does your pict smell very bad :lol:

Valete,

We occasionnaly fought with those, even if in most fights we only use fake wooden swords and spears as it is the rule in antique re-enactment in France.

Late Roman is great :)
There is even several units of Irish origin recording serving on the continent and even in the eastern empire! The Attacotti ;)
