Castra Romana 2005, a living history presentation held recently at Givhan’s Ferry State Park in nearby Ridgeville, gave locals a chance to experience one of the grandest periods of history — and reenactors the opportunity to live out dreams, fantasies, and games of life-or-death. The enthusiastic participants spent countless hours and lots of money re-creating a gladiator ring (minus the lions), Roman army drills, and military games. The fun continued into the night with torchlit gladiator games, a wedding, and an authentic Roman feast. Photographer Nancy Santos was on hand to document the fun and games.
