Hello,

I'm currently taking a Greeks and Romans class at my college, and I have some questions about Mycenaen armour.
My professor and I were curious if anyone has made any reproductions of the armour?
I'd really like to learn more about it.

Thanks,

Zach

I might be wrong but Dan Howard might have some armour that is similar to that. I am not expert, and barely a novice when it comes to armor, but it looks very similar. I have seen the armour in question posted in this forum, but I am not sure where.

Looked around a little, and realized that it is the armour that he is wearing in his forum picture.

Thank you very much!
So it's called the "Dendra Panoply", I tried a search on "Mycenaean" but it didn't turn up much results.

We are all envious of Dan's cuirass! (But he's envious of some of our stuff, too, so it all evens out, ha!)

Thanks for all the information everyone!
It's been very useful. I might use this a topic for my research paper Big Grin !
