…and shake hands with the past!

Ancient Rome is alive today! Founded in 2001, the Legion Six Historical Foundation is a group of dedicated living historians based in the greater Los Angeles and San Diego areas. Legion Six recreates the experience of life in a frontier province at the peak of the Roman Empire circa AD 30-130.  We bring hands-on history to people of all ages utilizing highly accurate recreations of ancient clothing, armor, weaponry, camp equipment and everyday utensils. Legion Six members portray both civilians and soldiers to create a “time warp” feeling reproducing the sights, sounds, and sensations of life nearly 2,000 years ago.

Legion Six has a long track record of “evangelizing ancient history” through various types of media including feature films and television documentaries. Legion members in their full Roman legionary and civilian regalia are frequently seen on The History Channel, The Learning Channel, National Geographic Channel, and PBS. Productions that have used Legion Six’s expertise, personnel and props include:
