Roman Tour of Europe

    Bob Garbisch, leader of the Roman re-enactment group Legio X Fretensis, based in San Francisco, California, is organizing a two-week tour of Roman sites and museums in France, Germany, Switzerland, and Britain, tentatively set to occur in August 2002.  The cost is estimated at $2,250 departing from Dulles Airport, Washington, D.C.

    The well-known author-illustrator Peter Connolly will be guiding the European portion of the tour (Week One), while Charles Wesencraft will be the guide in Britain (Week Two).  The itinerary, which is being arranged by the tour service of Peter and Angela Smith, includes St. Germain, Alesia, Hezvetii battlefield, Saalburg Fort and Museum, Teutoburger Forest, Ariovistus Battlefield, as well as other museums.  In England, a tour is planned of Hadrian's Wall and perhaps Bath as well.
