Archeon - Roman Days
Sunday 5 August 2001

All these pictures were shot during a visit to the 2001 Roman Week in ARCHEON. Guests were the Legio II Augusta , as well as the Colchester Society from the UK. I'd never been to this event before and was alerted to it only last-minute, so it turned out as as very nice surprise. Could do with a few merchants, though.
The weather had just cleared up, but it stayed dry for the rest of the day.
