Lorica Segmentata - Roman Armour

£112.50

The Corbridge Lorica Segmentata  Roman armour was found as part of a larger hoard during the 1964 excavations of Corbridge Roman Town near to Hadrian's Wall. Dating from between AD122 and 138, the contents of the hoard were found in excellent condition, due to the way that they were buried in an iron-bound, leather-covered wooden chest. The Corbridge Hoard is one the most remarkable Roman finds of the past century. The armour found there has since helped to shape Roman historians' understanding of Roman armour. The intricate designs and astonishingly preserved leather and textiles, helped people to understand how Roman armour was assembled and it was this discovery that made it possible to produce accepted reconstructions of this type of armour.
