I must get round to setting up a separate category for the battle at Kalefeld/Harzhorn about the battle that took place around AD235 between the Romans under Maximinus Thrax and the Germans. I mentioned a little while ago the exhibition which is planned next year.


Anyway, more on the exhibition at HNA.de along with sight of the poster. I hadn't realised that they are dropping EUR1.8m on the exhibition.

On the same subject, and also in HNA.de, there is debate about how best to display the battlefield. With any luck it will be more attractive and absorbing than Kalkriese and the battle of Teutoburg Forest. Full story here with an image of a proposed tower. On the plus side, they are really throwing money at it.
