Siege of Aurelianum
A recreation of the siege of Aurelianum, 451 AD.
About this creation
This is my idea for a Lego set based on the siege of Aurelianum, in May through June of 451 AD. The city came under attack by the Huns during Attila's Gallic campaign, and was the lynch pin to the Roman defence of the prefecture. It was defended by the Roman's staunch allies, the Alans of Sangiban, and the local garrison. On June 14th, the siege was lifted when Aetius came near with the Roman coalition, and Attila retreated to the Catalaunian Plains.

This is made of 512 pieces and took me about 3 hours to design and build. I submitted this project to Lego ideas as well, and since it's more educational themed, it might garner more support than the Endar Spire set I designed.
