Kids lightweight aluminum Lorica Segmentata (Type Corbridge A)
Nearly authentic replica of a Roman Lorica Segmentata (Roman clasp armour) following originals from approx. 30 A.D. found in Corbridge, England.
This adjustable cuirass for little legionaries is crafted from aluminium and therefore not only lightweight, but also corrosion-resistant, durable and low-maintenance. The historically accurate hinges, buckles and other decorative fittings are made of brass. The fastening straps as well as the front and back lacing are from leather.
With this Lorica, your child will be perfectly equipped to defend his/her own private castrum. And just like that, every Roman camp, costume party or playground can become a stage for heroic deeds.
The Lorica Segmentata was in use in the roman army for about 200 years. Earliest founds where made in Kalkriese (Germany) and come from the year 9 to christ.
The type Corbridge A was named after excavations in the village of Corbridge (North England), a place at the Hadrian´s Wall (the former roman camp Coriosopitum).
The Corbridge Hoard is a hoard of mostly iron artefacts that was excavated in 1964 within the Roman site of Coria, next to what is now Corbridge, Northumberland, England. It came from amongst the central range of administrative buildings in one of the early forts underlying the later Roman town and probably dates to between AD 122 and 138.
