The BATAVI are a small, friendly group who re-enact military and civilian life in the 4th to 6th centuries A.D.
Our military activities are based around a late Roman army unit, the Batavi Iuniores Britanniciani, which may have been formed in Britain in around 367 A.D. They then moved to join part of the mobile Gallic field army and are last recorded in central Gaul in the 420s A.D.

We also have a small late Roman Navy section, the Classis Sabrinae, and a civilian wing which displays everyday life, crafts and cookery from the period.
We have currently members in the Midlands and South of the UK.
