Over 2000 years ago, the original Legio VI was created in Cisapline Gaul and placed under the command of Gaius Julius Caesar. The legion went on to serve in Roman Gaul, Spain, Anatolia, North Africa, and the Levant. Today, the modern Legio VI recreates the legion as it would have appeared from the prefectureship of Pontius Pilate in 26 AD until the end of the Jewish revolt in 73 AD, during which time Legio VI was stationed nearby in Syria. Our members portray the basic infantrymen, cavalrymen, auxiliaries, and officers of Legio VI Ferrata, and we also do civilian and gladiatorial impressions as well.
Our mission is to portray the daily lives of Roman soldiers and civilians in Syria and the Levant through living history displays. Our purpose is to inform, educate, and entertain not just each other, but the public in general. We love our hobby, and we want the world to share in our knowledge and fun! We accomplish this by participating in Italian festivals, Renaissance fairs, museum displays, classroom demonstrations, and living history displays all across the southeastern U.S., as well as a variety of other venues.
