Hi EB team and fans!
I was looking up Youtube about some things when I bumped into this guy making videos about practicality of ancient and medieval weapons, armors and shields. (or that is what it seems) He made his own hoplite armor and he did it from thick leather. He arguments the fact that linen wasn't the main material for it and if it was, they used it to decorate the armor, rather than as an extra layer of protection.
Here's the link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=8PuaUR3cFps
What do you guys have to say about it?
