Roman Soldier's clothesEmperor Hadrian



Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore forms of chain mail, scale armour and segmented armour mounted on leather or linen.

Chain mail armour offered the most protection and was the most flexible - an important consideration when fighting a battle.

A skirt, or kilt made of strips of leather plated with metal offered protection for a soldiers legs and allowed flexibility and freedom of movement in battle.

Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore military sandals to protect their feet. These were called "caligae". The "caligae" were well-ventilated, strong leather sandals with leather straps.

They had iron hob-nails protruding through the sole for extra grip and to be more hard-wearing.

Later, in the Roman Empire a form of military boot was worn.

Cloaks and capes were worn by Roman Soldiers. A lacerna, was a comfortable cloak that could be worn by soldiers over the top of a tunic.

A military cape at first called trabea, then sagum, was much like a lacerna, but made of heavier material.

Finally, a Roman Soldier would have worn an iron helmet into battle to protect his head and neck.
