Corbridge Hoard Lorica Segmentata by rlkitterman Corbridge Hoard Lorica Segmentata by rlkitterman
Lorica segmentata, the segmented armor worn by Roman soldiers for most of the empire's history, confused historians as to how the plates were connected until the Corbridge Hoard was excavated in 1964, a few miles south of Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland.  The armor was preserved well enough to show the brass straps, hooks, buckles, and rivets that held the plates together.  A section of lorica segmentata from the Corbridge Hoard is now displayed at the Great North Museum (Hancock Museum) in Newcastle upon Tyne.
