Segmentated cuirass Lorica Segmentata (Type Newstead)
Very authentic replica of a roman Lorica Segmentata (roman clasp armour) following originals from approx. 9 A.D. found in Kalkriese, Germany.
The Lorica Segmentata was in use in the roman army for about 200 years. The type Newstead is named after a village in Southern Scotland, where the Roman castra
Trimontium was located. The remains of this camp gave the example for our reconstruction. In original these plate armors had been used between 130 and 280 AD. It’s the last version of plate armor used by the roman legionnaires. In later times they wore chain mail shirts like Lorica Hamata again.
Unlike the earlier versions from Corbridge or Kalkriese you can’t adjust the Newstead-armor. The four sections of the armor are to be fitted by hooks and connection assemblies. You can wear this one with a chest girth up to 112 cm circumference. Of course you should measure the circumference considering all (padded) cloths.
