Product Description

Middle Eastern archers served with the Roman legions for several hundred years. Famous for the conical helmets and chain mail armor they served as legionary auxiliary units.
The chain mail and lamellar armor worn by the Middle Eastern archers became the standard military dress for them and served them well for centuries. The mail shirt became a valued possession and was handed down from one generation to the next.
When the prophet Mohammed began his unification of Arabia his armies were principally infantry where archers were a major element. Subsequent his death in 632 AD his father-in-law took over the leadership of his army and continued the objective of converting the whole world to Islam.
With the successful conquest of vast territories beyond the Arabian peninsula the booty financed more armor and horses. By the ninth and tenth centuries, while foot soldier were still the bulk of Saracen armies, the fast and mobile mounted archers became the most feared of the Middle Eastern modes of warfare.
