Re-enactment is a hobby that involves the recreation of some aspect of a bygone era; it attracts participants of all genders, ages and occupations. This
type of activity has a long history, as evidenced by the Roman re-enactment of historic military engagements in their arenas. Today, museums and
historical sites often present staff or contract workers in living history settings to educate and stimulate the public.

Roman army re-enactors are role players who typically fabricate their own period clothing and equipment. They seek to experience military camp life in a
setting contemporary with the era/century in which they are interested. Amongst other activities this generally involves weapons practice, parade square
drill, execution of camp fatigue duties, and mock combat.
