Corbridge Hoard

  • Description

    A detail of the new (July 2012) Corbridge Hoard display at Corbridge Roman Museum showing the armour. The display has been made up of various disparate pieces of cuirass (it would be impossible to make it consistent, given the condition in which the armour has survived). Cuirass 1-4 and i-iv are Corbridge Type A, 5-6 and v-vi Type B/C. Ironically, the Type B/C upper shoulderguard used here was actually attached to its Type B/C breastplate unlike" >its chum, the cuirass 1 upper shoulderguard which had been transplanted to a Type A (as the Americans say, go figure!); not sure why EH chose to do this. Links are provided here to my scanned detailed slides of the armour taken when writing the report.
