How to join the legion!

Looking to join the mightiest army that ever lived?

You don’t need to be an archaeologist, speak Latin or own your own armour in order to join the Butser IX Legion.

You don’t even have to become a soldier – whether your special interest is in cookery, mosaics, scholastics or any other facet of Roman life we will be glad to hear from you .

All you need is enthusiasm for all things Roman , some spare time and £20 a year – we will arrange the rest.

To be a full member you have to be over 18 but we have many associate members who are younger.

If you are interested send an email to , or phone us .
