Ancient Warfare XII. 3, Oct-Nov 2018

We've just sent the latest edition of AW off to the printer. This issue's theme is wide-ranging, as we'll be looking at the concept of armour in the ancient world. We cover early history and development, manufacture, and even armour in a more abstract sense, with a look at the charms and talismans Roman soldiers used to guard against misfortune.
