These gladiators are taking time out for a brew ahead of a bank holiday extravanganza at Corbridge Roman Town.
The English Heritage property is hosting live gladiator displays and other Roman-themed activities on Sunday and Monday.
Jon Hogan, events manager at English Heritage, said: "For one weekend only, an army of brave Gladiators and courageous Romans will take back rightful control of the streets of the ancient Corbridge Town with exciting displays of strength, stamina and skill.
"English Heritage's Romans and Gladiators event is set to be one of the most dramatic performances yet and we are encouraging people to cheer on their champion at one of the last events to take place in the school holidays."
