New recruits
#31
Yes, welcome aboard. I share your fruistraton - no re-enacting where I live either - but you can see a good side to that. You can take time to research your gear and persona thoroughly. Nobody is pushing you. That is also good for your wallet Smile Of course, it is nice to hae other people around, but maybe once you get your basics together you can recruit some?

Actually I'm not new, but Carus Andiumae slightly re-invented. Hopefully my name is more accurate this time, but probably not - just innaccurate in a slightly different way.

1) I'm presently based in Atlanta, GA, USA.

2) I first became interested in many things Roman in the early 1960's, by reading public elementary/primary school library books on Roman history, culture, early Christianity, art, architecture, engineering, military, etc.

3) I'm here to learn, better understand, collaborate, research, experiment, translate, write, advise, teach, etc. Several friends & acquaintances recommended joining RAT, as they did, and after read many RAT posts, I agree with their recommendations & joined.

4) I do 1st century reenactment when my real life natural disaster response/ recovery/preparedness work, overseas family situation, and limited finances allow. I.e., that's not as often as I would like. I started a virtual 4-5th century (Rhaetia) "group" Legio III Italica Concors (Cohors III) in 2000, will start actual reenactment this year (this month, I'll contact individuals & groups that have similar 4-5th century interests). I'm a late 40's, Ph.D., government environmental & historic preservation officer; with (degrees in earth sciences (remote sensing minor), geography (cultural & economic; botany minor), and ecology (restoration, forest; statistics "minor"). I plan to return to school January 2005 for seven to 10 years of part-time studies for a Master's degree in historic preservation (I enjoy learning & doing so many things!!!). I lived & worked in Europe for three years, during 1980's, near former Castra Regina (home of Legio III Italica). I'm moderately fluent in German (Ja, Ich kann deutsch) & somewhat fluent in Spanish (Si, yo intiendo Espan~ol). I can read basic French & Italian; and I've just started studying Latin, to eventually translate original texts.

After lurking for some weeks and after several posts that have been already written by me on RAT v2, now its time to introduce myself better.

Quote:- where are you from?

1. I am from Gdynia, north of Poland .. its in eastern Europe Smile
Poland is the country where everybody ... [Image: pijacy.gif] .. several times a day .. [Image: tongue.gif]

2. I am re-enacting for 12 years, actually in 5 different periods. Please find some of my reconstructions here http://www.kakaj.prv.pl (By default late 15 c section will be loaded, but on the top you have links to other periods). Generally I am interested in all historical periods. But
since my real name is Cezar (its polish version of "Caesar"), it was known [Image: usmieszek_08.gif] that I will start to re-enact roman period one day ..

3. Why. ? hhmm .. this question is crazy [Image: crazy.gif]

4. Re-enacting is my hobby, my life and my job too. Since I am also founder and main administrator of online forum for all reenactors in Poland http://www.freha.pl .. I know all the best craftsmen from Poland, Ukraine and Belarus. I am supplying re-enacting groups from western europe with every replica they need.

Welcome Cezar/Cacius!

I used to try and argue that Murray was some form of Marius but I gave up on that :lol:

Cheers

Thank you also for your warm welcome. I first saw your Fectio website last year, which helped rekindle my Late Roman flames! Later this month, after our household move..., I plan to contact you & other 4-5th century Roman (i.e., modern & progressive minded :wink: ) persons & groups, to help me make better decisions when building my 4-5th c. kit, webpages & other things of mutual interest. Thank you again. Big Grin Best regards, +r.

Ave.
I am Caius (Caio that of Tarraco Viva's photos). I live near Barcelona. Though it(he,she) does not have anything that to see with my work I am charmed with the ancient history, and even more since I went to Tarraco Viva and I have started reading Valerio Massimo Manfredi. My other interests are RPG, to read historical novel and to play rugby.
