Group Description

Corvus is an Arthurian Celtic re-creation group patterned as the Personal guard of a Romano-British Chieftain during the decline of the Empire's influence in Britain.
We fight, feast, sing and attempt to preserve the period of Celtic and Roman influence, hoping to remember the best of both cultures. An historical precedent for Corvus is the Legio Primani (First Legion), a British raised force in the Roman Army which distinguished itself at the Battle of Argentorium. In the lore of Corvus, British veterans returned to rejoin their kinfolk and formed the Raven Brotherhood to defend their Chieftain, the Pendragon and the land of their birth.
Our device represents the three Celtic War Goddesses, Morrigan, Macha and Nemhain. The goddesses could appear as beautiful women, but in battle they would transform into ravens and influence the battle by their fierce presence. The name Corvus comes from the Latin word for raven which was the Roman name for our band (Legio Corvus, Raven Legion). Corvus is made up of two strong arms, An Fiach Braithreachas (Raven Brotherhood) and Um Fiach Teinntean (the Raven's Hearth). The Brotherhood is the fighting arm of Corvus organized as a war band while the Hearth is our household .
