Scale and Lamellar Armour in the West from the Bronze Age to the Nineteenth Century
<div>This is the first volume to bring together all the hitherto scattered evidence - archaeological, literary and artistic - for the forms and uses of scale and lamellar armours in the region west of the Urals throughout the two thousand years during which these armours were used. The interpretation of this meticulous collection of data is informed by the author's decades-long practical experience as a maker of arms and armour, martial artist and horseman. (Lamellar armour differs from the earlier scale armour in not needing a backing for the individual pieces of leather, iron or bronze). It offers systematic definitions and analysis of these often misunderstood forms of armour, along with detailed diargrams and instructions that will be of great use to any who wish to turn their hands to reconstruction. Along the way, this unique synthesis of evidence and interpretation debunks myths that have arisen in recent years.</div>
