The Romans and the rains came to the Friends of Roman Aldborough Military Weekend!
As you can see, the weather did not deter Legio VI Victrix or our guests – the Mayor of Harrogate, Nick Brown, the Mayor and Mayoress of Boroughbridge, Peter and Pauline Phillips and Andrew Jones, the local MP.
Unfortunately, rain prevented the Roman bread making demonstration – by a Polish Roman soldier! There was also concern about the chain mail which got very wet during the day. None of it was protected in the traditional Roman way – and was much less odorous! Some re-enactors store their chain mail in a strong bag with plastic scourers or loose sand to remove rust.
