This Archaic cuirass is a replica of an original from 750 to 600 BC. This type of cuirass is regularly depicted on Greek earthenware and a number of originals have been excavated. Cuirasses like this were worn in the regions of modern Greece, Syria, Crete and Turkey by the Greeks and cultures that were strongly influenced by the Greek style. Cuirasses like this were for example also worn by the Etruscans and other Italic cultures.

The Archaic Greek period is characteristized by several conflicts, of which the Greek-Persian War and the Arcadian Wars are the most well-known.

Does this armour fit?
Do you wear a gambeson: add 10-15 cm to your circumference.
Do you wear a gambeson and hauberk: Add 15-20 cm to your circumference.
Tip: Is this armour too big for you? You can easily add extra padding.

Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.

Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
