The Romans Returned

Saturday rain, but Sunday was glorious, we weren't worried - The Deja Crew was under canvas,

Our activities tent...

Shamus told Wondrous Stories...

Muriel wove willow and explained the powers of Herbs

Nest created bright braids and explained the mysteries of Dying and weaving

and the Life in the Roman Army with Rufus Aelius Victor

Hopefully we'll be back again next year, see you then.

it's official...

...after much work behind the scenes we are there -  we are now a Co-operative and a Limited Liability Partnership in our own right.
For us this means that we now have a legal identity and can trade as The Deja Crew Living History Co-operative LLP.  We're ready now to embark on exciting new projects...

There is still much to do, over the next few weeks we will update the website and our leaflets.

In the meantime we will be at 'The Romans Return Event' at Hardwick Country Park, near Sedgefield over the weekend of 25th and 26th August.  More details to follow
