Castra Romana XIII: Remembering Pompeii
 
On August 24, 832 (79 AD) Mt Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii killing thousands of Roman citizens, slaves, gladiators, merchants, and loving pets.  After 1700 years the city was rediscovered and was excavated by many important figures throughout history. For the thirteenth Castra Romana we will remember, honor, and celebrate the city that was Pompeii. 
 
The event will feature Roman soldiers, Gladiators, Civilians, Barbarians, period craftsman, and even a real eruption from a volcano!  It is sure to be a thrill for all, spectator and re-enactor alike.  It is hosted by South Carolina's only Roman Legion, Legion VI FFC.
 
Fees:
$2 park entry - $5 donation to Castra Romana - $10 Centurio's Convivium
