S.C.E.A.R. : Roman army and auxiliary units

The title of organisation, S.C.E.A.R. Is a an abbreviation from latin translation of the civil association, Societas Civilis Exercitus Auxiliorumque Romanorum, meaning The civil association of Roman army and auxiliary units. The fundamental focus of association lays in education and presentation regarding the ancient military history.

Our members are being trained in ancient martial arts and in handling various weaponry (e.g. gladius). This knowledge is used in composing performance act based on fencing and theatre, or in improvised duels or battle reconstruction alongside other reenactment groups based on Ancient Rome history.

Subsequently, our members are encouraged to study civil history and artisan crafts. Crafts are useful for making parts of the equipment (tunicas) or gear (shields,shoes). Least but not last - members are honing their skill in theatrical performance and reenactment.
