Panem et Circenses: Sacred Stone Baronial Birthday
September 07- 09, 2018
Barony of Sacred Stone
Panem et Circenses - join us for our Roman holiday as we celebrate Sacred Stone's 36th birthday. A week-end of learning, fighting and great company: something for everyone.
Martial Activities: Heavy Fighters: The melee field battle you've been waiting for. Their Excellencies desire a multi-man tournament to best display the fighters competing for the title of Baronial Champion. Sir Marc has once again sponsored his famous sword tourney. Are you up for the challenge?
Youth fighters: Their Excellencies are searching for a Youth Champion - come fight for the honour. And never to be outdone, there will be a mystery melee fought. Stay tuned for details.
Equestrians: What would a circenses be without horses? A sad excuse is what. We don't intend on the races of old, but many challenges of skill await.
Archery: Mist ress Lorelei is running archery. Do I really need to say more? More details as she decides.
Thrown weapons: TBD
Arts & Sciences Activities: Yes the Roman's are coming! Legions of them! They are bringing their arts and their sciences. There will be workshops! But, before we send them home, we'll have a chance to wow and impress them with our understanding of their culture. The overall theme for A&S competitions for Circenses will be "Head to Toe" Roman. In addition, we are also seeking peer challenges in all other areas- foods, encampments/displays, ag and martial etc. Contact Jenna Fairhaven with the specifics no later than tax day if you'd like to issue a peer challenge.

Feast Information: Our day board will be based off a travelers welcome from the town of San Gimignano circa 10th century of foods that would be put out for travelers from Northern Europe to Jerusalem to entice them to stay in the town for a night.
And feast, what can be said? It could be something from 12th century Rome, a Medici affair? Or is will it be based on Scappi's cookbook from his time cooking at the Vatican? Keep an eye here and see...
No matter what is served, you won't be bored - there will be various entertainments going on throughout feast. Well worth every penny.
Merchanting Information: Merchants are welcome, please contact the autocrat.
Other Information: Come see the debates in the Forum. Not up for strictly intellectual pursuits? Someone will be recreating Roman Hairstyles. Get your haid done by Domina Arria Marina who will serve as an Ornatrix, or a Roman Hair Dressing Slave, and will be available to style your hair as well as instruct observers on the styles.
At the event, she will have a booth setup where ladies may have their hair made into one of five period hairstyles. There will be a small fee to cover supplies only, but this will be a joint A&S and Service display.
Clients may chose from five hairstyles listed at: https://arriamarina.com/.../21/recreat ing-roman-hairstyles/
Note: The styles that state â€œrequirementsâ€ will include accessories, which clients must provide for themselves.
And lo and behold, the actual Romans are coming! Living History Displays by Legio VI Ferrata Fidelis Constans
Over 2000 years ago, the original Legio VI was created in Cisapline Gaul and placed under the command of Gaius Julius Caesar. The legion went on to serve in Roman Gaul, Spain, Anatolia, North Africa, Syria, and the Levant.
Legio VI Ferrata was re-founded in 2001 by Rusty Myers, or Primus Pilus Justus Rustius Longinus of the Legion. The modern Legio VI recreates the legion as it would have appeared during the first century, from the crucifixion of Christ in 29 AD until the end of the Jewish revolt in 73 AD, during which time Legio VI was stationed nearby in Syria. Our members portray the basic infantrymen, cavalrymen, auxiliaries, and officers of Legio VI Ferrata, as well as civilian and gladiatorial impressions. Our Legion also welcomes impressions from other eras during its existence such as the late Republic, 2nd Century, and 3rd Centuries AD. We also have affiliated groups for other areas such as Gladiatorial displays, late Roman Reenactment, and Germanic or Celtic tribes as well.
The rumor is that the gods might walk among us, with so much going on. If you can find them and gather a token from each can you even imagine the riches in store? Not sure where to look? Perhaps a visit to the oracle might set you on the right path.
