Reconstructing and Testing Ancient Linen Body Armor

4:00 PM
One of the most common forms of protection used by ancient Mediterranean warriors, including the armies of the Greeks and Alexander the Great, was the linothorax, a type of body armor made out of linen. Due to the perishable nature of its material, however, no examples have survived, and today it is known only through fragmentary descriptions in literature and images on pottery and in sculpture. Employing only the materials and techniques that would have been available to the ancient Greeks, the UWGB Linothorax Project is investigating this mysterious armor by reconstructing examples of the linothorax and subjecting them to attack with ancient weapons in order to determine the characteristics and protective qualities of this type of armor. This presentation will describe the project’s findings and display a reconstructed linothorax and test samples for the audience’s examination.
