Digger's View: Dux has a Standard Bearer ...


Brilliant knitting wizard and digger Liz kindly knitted a lovely companion for Dux in the form of a Roman Standard Bearer! Both soldiers are now posted in Eboracum for a tour of duty, but will be returning to Glannoventa next year.

People have asked where Roman rubber ducks can be obtained. Dux was bought in the British Museum Shop at their Pompeii Exhibition in July 2013.  The exhibition has now finished but the ducks can be bought online here.

If you want to knit your own Roman legionary, or even legion, the pattern can be found here

Perhaps they would be perfect Christmas gifts for a Romans in Ravenglass digger this year?!
