Since the first century AD the lorica segmentata was worn by the Roman legionaries. This type of armor consists of steel strips that overlap each other and efficiently protect the body. The first archaeological find of a lorica segmentata was in Kalkriese (Germany) and is estimated to come from the year 9 AD. This lorica segmentata is a replica of an original excavated in Corbridge (UK) that comes from the second century AD. The Corbridge type A is typical for its 4 compartments: two shoulder halves and two torso halves. The sizes of this lorica can be adjusted with leather straps and it has beautiful brass ornaments.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
