Since the first century AD the lorica segmentata was worn by Roman legionaries, during the golden period of the Roman empire. The lorica segmentata consists of steel plates that overlap and thus form a body protection. In the event of damage, individual plates could be forged again as a replacement. The original on which this Lorica segmentata is based, was found in Corbridge in England and dates from the second century AD. This type of Lorica segmentata, the Corbridge A, consists of two separate torso and shoulder halves. This lorica segmentata protects the abdomen, chest, back, shoulders and armpits. The armor has leather straps and laces to adjust the size.

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.
