Once again, Magister Militum returns to the town of Malton, Yorkshire, on the site of the original Roman fort of Derventio, built under orders of governor Agricola. The site remained occupied for nearly 300 years, and was the home of a dedicated jet jewellery foundry. 

Now in the third year of the festival, we will be bringing a larger contingent and more display items to show off, and friends old and new will be joining us. Come along to see cavalry displays by Equistry riding group, and Magister Militum present a full living history camping display as well as scheduled demonstrations in the main arena during the day. We will also be joined this year by our friends at the VI Legio Victrix Eboracum and Roma Antiqua, the latter of whom will be bringing Roman artillery to show off.

Traders and stalls will also be situated along the route of the fort's original roads, so come along to enjoy a day surrounded by Romans inside the site of an original Roman fort!
