INDUMENTIS ROMANUS (Roman Clothing) is a collection of articles, research, images, and resources gathered and created in an attempt to expand my own knowledge of the ancient Roman world and my own historical accuracy as a Roman persona within the Society for Creative Anachronism. I hope that others who are interested in ancient Rome will also find this collection useful.
This site is now, and will forever be, under construction as I continue to learn about Rome and share my knowledge, as I continue to colorize images for study, and as I continue to work on various Roman arts and sciences projects, classes, and documentation. If you discover that something here is wrong, please let me know! If I'm missing some valuable information, let me know what I've missed. If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask! If you have comments, I would love to hear them!
Who am I?
In the SCA I am known as Comitessa Marcia Dulcitia (also known in the SCA as Countess Dulcia MacPherson) and I live in the Barony of An Crosaire, in the Kingdom of Trimaris. I have been honored to be elevated to the Orders of the Laurel, Pelican, and Rose. I'm a former Queen of Trimaris, and a former Baroness of An Crosaire. My most important role in the SCA, and out of it, is being the wife of Syr Turold Dunstan Arminger.
My registered SCA name is a remnant from my first decade in the SCA, when I had a very late 16th century English persona. I'm working on creating a proper Roman name to register, and plan on using "Dulcia" as my nickname. Building a new Roman persona late in my SCA career is interesting because SCA and medieval European offices, social structures, and ranks don't translate easily to the ancient Roman world, but I'm doing my best.
My Roman persona is Comitessa Dulcia, the daughter of a suffect consul, and relative of the Imperial family, who currently resides in Britannia c.125 CE with her husband. Turold (who is a 13th century English Baron in his world) is currently serving as a Legatus Legionis in my world. He previously served as Consul (aka Kingdom Seneschal), and was a Legatus Propraetore Augusti (a Provincial Governor appointed by the Emperor, since we served together as the Baron and Baroness of An Crosaire).
