Description

The Roman Military Equipment Conference (RoMEC) is dedicated to the study of the military equipment of the Roman world, from the 8th century BC to the fall of the Byzantine empire. This includes all the cultures of this period in contact with Roman polities. It is open to all interested parties, professional, amateur, academic, re-enactor, archaeologist and historian.
RoMEC started as a seminar group meeting in the University of Sheffield in 1983, and has since developed into a major international conference series which has met every two to three years at Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham and South Shields in the UK, and on the continent at Bonn (Germany), Budapest (Hungary), København (Denmark), Leiden (Neths), Magdalensburg (Austria), Mainz (Germany), Montpellier (France), Nijmegen (Neths), Vienna (Austria), Windisch (Switzerland), Xanten (Germany) and Zagreb (Croatia). It has generally been hosted by universities and major museums, including the Natonal Museums of Denmark and Hungary, and the Kunsthistorishes Museum in Vienna. Not since 1999 has a conference been held in Britain, and St Andrews 2016 will be the first meeting in Scotland.
