The XIV Legion invade Droitwich Spa, Worcester

This weekend Sue and I visited the Droitwich Spa Saltfest, a living history and salt heritage display that is held every year in the town centre and Vines Park. The highlight for me was the Roman Military Research Society and their display of warmachines, which were re-built as full size and quarter scale replicas. Here are some images.

They also had a working Roman soldier camp complete with kitchen/bakery and workshop. The XIV legion, dressed in their blue uniforms with blue shield motifs were very easy to talk to and showed a real interest in question that were asked by me and other members of the public.
