Early Medieval Scale Armour Birka Type, Chest 104 to 122cm, Scales 97 X 22 X 1.1mm, Weight 6.7kg
Reproduction of early medieval lamellar armour as worn for example by the Saxons, the Franks and the Vikings.
Finds from Visby and Birka (Sweden) have furnished evidence that this type of armour was popular with the (North) Germanic people. The scales used here are modelled on original pieces found in Birka.
Our lamellar armour is hand crafted from approx. 430 mild steel scales. The individual scales are tied together by means of thick leather cords. They are not galvanised and may consequently be subject to corrosion.
Our lamellar armour can be expanded with our set of 25 steel scales for self-assembly (Product No. ULF-SC-01).
