The lorica segmentata is believed to have been introduced in the ranks of the Roman Army during the first century A.D., and was widely used at the height of the Roman Empire. Although it never completely replaced the maille (lorica hamata) or scale (lorica squamata) armors, the lorica segmentata typifies the modern view of the Roman soldier. This superb replica is made from 18 gauge steel with brass fittings. It is closely copied from a lorica found in Newstead, Scotland, which dates from the second century A.D. This armor is quite flexible and allows plenty of freedom of movement.
