Event Cancellation Notice
It is with heavy heart that the organizers of the Ravensborg Germania event (Aug 27-29) announce this events cancellation.
It is through mutual agreement with representation from all of the major participating groups that this decision has been made. Multiple community health factors – notably the rise of the Delta variant and its spread within Missouri, uncertainty around vaccination status among all populations (modern and reenactor), and concern about inadvertently providing transmission vectors - have led us to the conclusion that we should err on the side of caution. We value our reenactor community and those who are dear to them and do not wish to intentionally endanger anyone.
Those who have sent PayPal donations for the site who might wish a refund, please send an email to Sam Shoults at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All refunds will be processed through PayPal only. If you do not directly request a refund, your donation will be applied towards site improvements, maintenance and future event costs.
Thank you for your patience and understanding! We hope to see you in the field soon! Stay safe and be well!

69CE. Only days after The Batavian revolt lead by Jvlvis Civilvs, a contubernium detached from Legio XIIII scouted the walled village of Hrabanazburh, of the Ravanni tribe; searching for allies and for foes.
It was there that the Romans meet with Chief Dernivs and his men and found Roman citizens seeking shelter under the Germanic warlord, along with strange emissaries from the East.
While the situation was ripe for real violence, in the end, the Roman troops and the Germanic tribesman participated in mock combat and allowed the Germanic warriors an opportunity to prove their skill in arms.
Retired auxilae prepared a feast that was pleasing for both German and Roman soldiers and much roman wine and german beer was drunk in the interests of keeping peace.
The Romans have left, escorting their citizens to safety and the news of at least one allied village to their command. But winter has come and the crop is lean and Dernivs has many hungry warriors.
What will await the Romans when they return?
