Auxilia – Rome’s Cutting Edge: Diversity and Culture in the Roman Army

7th July @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Roman auxiliary soldiers were an essential and formidable part of the invincible Roman Army. Their specialist military skills held back the hostile barbarian hordes especially along the frontiers of the Empire such as in Roman Britain. But what exactly do we know about them?

With insights about the latest research and archaeological finds, experts from Roman Tours reveal the fascinating diversity and culture of these tough and adaptable men – and women – many thousands of whom came from tribes as far away as the Eurasian Steppes to serve in the northern military zone here in Chester and along Hadrian’s Wall.
