Antiquity and Gladiator armour
Are you a lover of Greek and Roman history? Are you fascinated by gladiatorial matches and do you admire their warriors? In this section you'll find leather armour, not only for use for playing gladiatorial battles, but for various historical events. A gladiator is a person fighting to entertain the audience. The name is derived from the word gladius, which is a short sword used by these warriors. Gladiators were often slaves or convicts, but this was not the rule, there were also professional gladiators who were free citizens. Gladiatorial games were held in Rome and provincial cities and symbolised the preservation of the empire's continuity.
