Welcome

Comitatus is Britain's leading Late Roman re-enactment group helping to set a new standard in historical authenticity. Putting on highly professional events across the country, the group is able to bring to an event a complete living history presentation demonstrating the life and skills of the Late Roman army, including infantry, cavalry, artillery, archery, gladiators, hunting and everyday life.

The group also enjoys re-creating other aspects of classical antiquity, such as earlier Romans, the Greek and Hellenistic period, and Celtic Britain. We are the only organisation in the world able to field ancient Greek cavalrymen, riding in the correct equipment without saddles or stirrups. We offer a selection of highly professional, exciting and educational displays that entertain thousands of people, across the country, each year. And as ever, our reconstructed artefacts are of the highest standard and are not just for show. We actually use them!

About Us

Comitatus members present full living history interpretations from within an authentic tented encampment based on the craft skills of the legionaries and their families.

Rather than 'battle re-enactment', our field displays show authentic training based on manuals of the period, complete with Latin drill, missile competition, sharp weapons demonstration, combat sparring and, whenever possible, an opportunity for young members of the public to experience things first-hand.

The group is always expanding and taking on new and exciting aspects of historical re-enactment.

Our members are dedicated enthusiasts who enjoy what they do and have a reputation for passing on this passion to the public! Members of the public frequently join us as members after seeing the displays, and we are always open to new recruits.
