Lorica Segmentata Roman Armour - Child Size

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.

Our Lorica Segmentata Roman Armour – Child Size is a highly accurate representation of how the armour would have looked when it was worn by the garrison stationed at Hadrian's Wall.

It is constructed from aluminium so that it is lightweight and robust and will not rust or tarnish. It features brass and leather fittings like the originals. The tunic is based on an original design and is constructed from cotton.  They are designed to fit children up to around 12 years old.

The Child Size Lorica Segmentata is great a great learning aid for kids studying Key Stage 2 (KS2) history.
