The Theme for Castra 2017 is AEGYPTVS! (Egypt's influence on Rome).
Reenactors will be bringing unique pieces of Romano-Egyptian culture, technology, and society to display the Roman obsession with Egypt! Reenactors, we are asking everyone to bring two pieces of that help show how the Romans across the entirety of the Empire loved Egypt! You may bring more, but all those who bring two contributions will have their fees waived. Also, a short write-up that we can use to display your piece of Romano-Egyptian culture. Join us for a unique year in Castra History!
