My name is Vladimir Popov, Chairman of the Association for antique renovations "Mos Maiorum Ulpiae Serdicae". I am the one of pioneers in Roman re-enactment in Bulgaria - in 2007 I was the first, who was started reconstruction of Roman legionary from period of Trajan's Dacian Wars. My interests are also Late Roman military equipment, and Roman medicine. I am the first re-enactor in my country, who explore, recreate and study medicinal herbs and ways of treatment, described in Ancient sources.

I have extensive experience of participation with similar organizations in the country and abroad /in Italy, Romania, Hungary and Russia/. Also I have frequently organized and helped to conduct re-enactment and Living History events in Plovdiv, Kyustendil, Kabyle, Stara Zagora, Razgrad, Garmen and Nikyup. I have very big experience in organizing a various Antiquity festivals, which demonstrates the different elements of life consistent with historical epoch - crafts, cuisine, medicine, entertainment and games, rituals, everyday items and more.

On 08.06.2016 I and my friends founded Association for Antique reconstructions "Mos Maiorum Ulpiae Serdicae" in Sofia - the capital of Bulgaria. This is the youngest Roman reenactment group, but first in the Sofia, and it is dedicated to the representation and promotion of the ancient history.

The group combines historical interests of our members and implementation of accurate reconstructions of Roman rituals, clothing, and weaponry. We are making our research, including exploration, study and analysis of Roman sources and gathering the information about life in the Antiquity. We create reconstructions of clothing items and weapons with authentic materials and perform their use as it was during the era.

We participate in meetings, forums, festivals, various museum events and celebrations, and more. The aim of these events is to attract public attention to our hobby, to make the Ancient history more popular and to cultivate interest among the younger generation.
