Luca's Fabrica

Traduzione in italiano

This is a little web space where I posted most of my notes about my experience in reconstructing pieces of the roman military equipment.
There is not very much here, but I included in some page also some little research and historical or archeological details in order to make better understand some of the choices I made while working.
I post here all I know that is not already available in other Internet places.
I hope this can be useful for all the other roman reenactors always looking for making a better (reenacting) world.
