Militaria - Accessories to the Roman War Machine

Opening at the end of March, this exhibition will focus on the ordinary soldier.
Over 40 objects are being loaned to the museum from a private collector and highlights include a complete legionary helmet found at a site in Wiesbaden-Erbenheim (Germany) in 1970/71 and a military diploma bestowing Roman Citizenship to Longinus Festius who served as a member of a unit of Syrian archers and who were later stationed at Magna, the fort next to the Roman Army Museum. This collection of artefacts will also highlight a range of fascinating fibula or brooches illustrating the Roman soldiers flare for the decorative.
