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.
