Short trip in Lyon, France
It was a really interesting trip to Lyon. Several reenactment groups have been hired for showing the visitors of the museum of ancient rome the live of an roman soldier and the gauls. More than hundred people were disguised as soldiers and Gauls, useing costumes, that were as clos as possible to the history.
On the three days of the stay we also showed some fights, romans against gauls, always useing the way of fighting archaeology and literature teaches us. The people were really curious about that and liked it. Also for us it was interesting, because after museum was closed, we kept onto live history. I would do that again, if the groups that participate are historically correct.
