What are YOU interested in here. No politics
though, please. As much as many of us like to talk it,
sometimes we don't also and this isn't Facebook.
The thing is, Roman is way far off... I know
some units think that they are harder than hard, but
really, before you can run, you must crawl and before you
can crawl, you need to sit up... Most of us on the Roman
world are at the sittin' up stage. Really. Authenticity
has many levels:
-Material authenticity with one's gear. We
struggle with that every day. What is the limit?
Hand-forged armor? Hand-woven cloth? Primitive leather
tanning? Eyewear? Underwear? Shoe insoles?
-Language... None of us REALLY speaks Latin.
Latin is hard. My hope is a cartoon-language book like we
have for later German. I'm not am artist, but some of the
phrases will allow us to put together some kind of Latin
speak. YOUR THOUGHTS on this?
-Food... Roman Army food was kind of bleak.
Sounds like Sal isn't going to be doing this... Mark had
done it a lot at Lafe -- I have his recipes on
RomanoBritain.org ... Food can really help take you there.
Here a lot harder when you're chowing down on a Mt. Dew,
Twinkies and other crap. I'm bad there too... I like my
perrier. Mark makes pretty good posca. Really. Roman food
isn't usually bad, just different. Different ideas. Thoughts? No Chris, no

chapter, just not public because, well, a lot of it is

link to that in another email.
were not trapped to MTA anymore, maybe we can do some
other events. Taking days off work and spending hundreds
of dollars was not keen. What kind of events would you
