Legio Secvnda Avgvsta

Legio Secvnda Avgvsta would like to welcome you to our home page.

Legio Secvnda Avgvsta or as we might expect to see the title Legio Secunda Augusta was one of the four legions that took part in the AD43 invasion of Britannia. Prior to the invasion they had formed part of the garrison along the Rhine.

Since our inception over 20 years ago Legio Secunda Augusta's military and civilian display sections have gone from strength to strength to become one of Europe's pre-eminent Roman Living History groups.

We cover the 1st and 2nd century AD from circa 43 AD, the time of the Roman invasion of Britain, onwards.

Our display encompasses the full range of Roman military and civilian life. Come along to one of our events, meet and talk to legionaries, officers, a military doctor, a midwife, citizens of Rome, gladiators and slaves.

All this comes together to create an unforgettable living history experience
