Legionary Kit

Some of the items carried by legionary are shown here.

Dolabra
 Dolabra

Dolabra was standard issue equipment of the Roman legions. This tool was used for entrenching and camp building, as well as an emergency weapon, at least when ambushed while performing these activities. In reality, many soldiers would have used this tool much more than their weapons.

Turf-Cutter
 Turf-Cutter

The Roman turf cutter was a piece of standard issue equipment of the Roman legions. This tool was used primarily in the building of the defensive trench encircling the fortified camp that would be construced each night at the end of the days march. Will be availability to use this tool as a weapon.

Patera (Pan), Wicker Basket, Sickle, Situla (Cooking Pot)

Items
carried as part of the camping equipment of each legionary. A bronze mess tin (Patera), water bucket/kettle (Situla), a sickle for cutting grain and forage and a wicker basket for earth moving.

Pila Muralia (for fortifying the camp)
Pila Muralia (for fortifying the camp)

Pila Muralia was a double-pointed wooden stake carried by Roman soldiers for use in fortifying the ramparts of temporary camps.

Celtic sword was used by Gallic tribes


Celtic La Tene Type III Sword

Celtic La Tene Type III Sword


From about 125 BC to 100 AD. The sword remains large and parallel-edged for much of its length, where there is a point, it is a short one. Emphasis is on the cut, and blades are either longer, broader, or both in respect to the preceding period. (80-90 +cm blade length and often 4.5 or more cm broad). So we have here really long sword.

That is it for this month guys, stay tuned for updates in the near future.
