This pair of bronze Ancient Greek style leg greaves offer complete leg protection for combat re-enactors. Extra long and will cover the knees.

These are genuine bronze pieces and not brass as commonly available. If accuracy of materials in your ancient impression is your thing then these are for you.

They are edged in leather, well padded in 10mm closed cell foam and covered in linen canvas.

Often in matched pairs ( a pair of greaves), greaves may be constructed of materials ranging from padded cloth to steel plate - as here. Some designs protect only the lower leg (a half-greave) or extend upwards to protect the thigh

Size: 430mm long
Weight: 2.2kg (1.1kg each)

Combat Rating: 8 out of 10

Note: Some of our pictures are of the brass version, but we assure you that this product is bronze.

Better equipped Roman Republic soldiers, Triarii, wore greaves on both shins reminiscent of the Ancient Greeks. The Roman Centurions wore altered greaves from the standard Roman uniform. Later Imperial Legionnaires did not wear greaves, except for the centurions who retained them.

A greave (from 12th century French greve "shin", of uncertain origin) is a piece of armour that protects the leg.
