Alma Chamber
Romans vs Barbarians
Castlerock Museum
On Saturday, August 17, 2024 at 2:00pm, Frank LaBreck and Patrick Kelly will give a special presentation on “Romans vs Barbarians” at Castlerock Museum in Alma, Wisconsin.

In ancient times, as the Romans fought to conquer most of Europe and North Africa, they battled numerous tribes that they referred to simply as “barbarians.” This program will explore the culture, weapons, armor, and tactics of the opposing sides. Visitors will be able to see how a Roman legionary and a “Barbarian” warrior were equipped and examine the weapons and armor that they used.

Frank LaBreck is a museum volunteer and reenactor with an interest in medieval warfare. Patrick Kelly is a fellow volunteer and reenactor who also works as a cutler at Arms and Armor in Minneapolis.

Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Museum members receive a 50% discount. Castlerock Museum will open at 1pm for visitors that would like to see the exhibits beforehand. Contact the museum at 608.685.4231 or for more details.

Castlerock Museum is an arms and armor museum; our exhibits include arms and armor from many points in European history. A visit offers the chance to view and learn about authentic armor spanning many periods; the collection begins with ancient Greece, and concludes in the early modern period. To provide a better sense of the many different cultures our arms and armor originates from, we enrich our displays by using art prints to show the arms and armor in their historical context.
