Ancient Roman Reenactors Victoria are coming to the University of Melbourne with a living history display and demonstration of Ancient Rome.
Experience a military exhibition, showcasing Roman military kit and equipment.

Led by Centurion Calvus, the marching legion X Fretensis will display the might of the Roman military. This exciting demonstration will showcase the discipline and battle tactics that were successfully used to conquer the known world.
