Virtual start of the season

Public events are still not possible, but we have started our season in front of the camera.

How to build a "lorica squamata"

In a detailed project report, our signifer looks back on many hours of work in building his new armour.

Roman Army at your service

The I. ROEMERCOHORTE OPLADEN e.V ("First Roman Cohort of Opladen") is a historical society which aims to reconstruct the equipment, the way of life and the everyday duty of the Roman Army and its civilian surroundings by re-enacting ancient Roman life as authentically as possible. For more than 30 years this has been done by reconstructing several items of daily use, both large and small. Many activities are carried out in cooperation with archaeological museums, where we then present the results of our work to the public.
