The interpretation of this meticulous collection of data is informed by the author's decades-long practical experience as a maker of arms and armour, martial artist and horseman. (Lamellar armour differs from the earlier scale armour in not needing a backing for the individual pieces of leather, iron or bronze). It offers systematic definitions and analysis of these often misunderstood forms of armour, along with detailed diargrams and instructions that will be of great use to any who wish to turn their hands to reconstruction."@en ;
