7th MANCENT Roman Army Conference: The Roman Army – what survives?

 

This Course had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. We hope to run this event in January as a Virtual event. 

The 7th Roman Army School organised by MANCENT and the Roman Gask Project

The 2021 Roman Army School is going to offer a slightly different view of the Roman Army. Instead of finding out what the Roman army was like in antiquity, we are going to find out what later people liked about the Roman Army and perhaps even why.

What makes the Roman Army special? What is the attraction of the army of an Empire that vanished in the West 1600 years ago?

We have invited a number of members of MANCENT to address different aspects of this, working from their personal expertise.
