Heimatverein VETONIANA Pfünz e.V.

Legionnaires and craftsmen of Römergruppe Pfünz at their campsite. Members of this reenactment society demonstrated the work of various craftsmen during Roman times in Germany. The legionnaires of the unit participated in field exercises alongside several other legions at the annual Roman gathering in Aalen on 23rd and 24th September 2000. The unit also showed beautifully made replicas of Roman Scorpio and Onager catapults, different types of arrowheads, shields, body armour and other personal equipment carried by the Roman legionnaire. Members of the unit were always on hand to answer the many questions asked by a very interested audience.
