Welcome and Greetings!
Fectio is a Dutch Late Roman Re-enactment Society. We focus on the military part of Late Roman society during the 4th to 5th century. Our area is the Western Empire, especially in the Lower German and British provinces. The name Fectio is taken from the Limes fortress on the Dutch Lower Rhine frontier, today know as Vechten. Our unit is know as the Fectienses Seniores, belonging to the army class of the Pseudo-Comitatenses. Events for this year(More...)
