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.

Many activities are carried out in cooperation with archaeological museums, where we then present the results of our work to the public.
