Event details
Circa 125AD.  Vindolanda, a Roman auxiliary fort lying just south of Hadrian’s Wall in England’s northern lands is a cold and dreary place for the Roman soldiers stationed there to spend a long winter.  To ease the pain of the cold months ahead, their commander has instructed Centurion Spurius Genucius Rutilus to organize a Saturnalia celebration with the troops and invite all to join in the festivities!  Feasting, gaming, gift-giving and general merriment are in store for those who come to honour Saturn, the Roman god of Harvest and Agriculture.

IO!  Saturnalia!
