The contubernium was the smallest organized unit of soldiers in the Roman Army and was comprised of eight legionaries, comparable to the modern squad. Two "servants" (actually comparable to modern support troops) were assigned to each contubernium. They were responsible for the care of the pack mules, making sure the legionaries had water during the march and often had special skills like blacksmithing or carpentry. Ten contubernia were grouped into a centuria. Soldiers of a contubernium shared a tent, and were rewarded or punished together. This 15mm tent is designed to be used as a baggage element for any Roman army camp and fits on a standard 40x40mm DBM baggage base. It's accurately sized according to the sources that all agree it was 10 by 10 roman feet, and 5 feet tall.
