The Roman's Weapons

Each Roman Soldier carried a short sword called a Gladius. This was the Soldier's main weapon. The Roman Soldier's carried along with the sword a Pilum, or also known as Javelin. But for defence a strong built scutum(shield). It was made by comprised pieces of bentwood, steam over a form to bend to deflect hits.


The Roman's armory was pretty good, the rich had very nice expensive armor and the normal Roman soldiers had a nice armor that was strong built with iron lapping over each other one. Weapons of choice are the best, a Gladius for close range combat and same, but with the Pilum long range combat. With the protective shield, just two pieces of bentwood.
