Zwammerdam - newest 2nd century boots


These are described as style Zwammerdam and are dated 140 - 170 AD. It's distribution is Northern provinces and Antonine Wall sites. The shoes are described by Carol van Driel-Murray in the excellent article in the book Stepping through Time.
The usual style is a shoe, but ankleboots have also been found, so we decided to have a go at both types. Smaller size shoes are also good for lady's and childeren, as most finds were for small sizes! They have been found both nailed and sewn, so we had the boots nailed and the shoes sewn. This first prototype pair do not yet have the radiant openwork done, further pairs will ...

Brigetio Gallic 'J' Helmet

http://daniyalhelmets.blogspot.com/


The helmet dates from the second half of the first Century. Yes it is. Mid to late first Century. A type not previously commercially available, but a beauty nonetheless! I'm certain that DSC will do their usual stunning and accurate reconstruction of it too. The original is from Hungary but currently on display in the UK. It's probably going to be prettier than the Carnuntum helmet . Note the brass front edge to the browguard! - Aka Adrian Wink

REACTIONS :

very clever marketing, keeping the nicest designs till last.... I like it a lot. The cheekguards look fantastic and are nice and long... But I think I want one of these. - Jef Pinceel

Awesome! Well done! - Jurjen Draaisma

Very nice work! Long live the cooperation between Peroni and DSC! - Sander Van Daele

Interesting eyebrows, the whole helmet flows. The angle of the guard looks ideal for stopping downward blows. And I like the fact the neck guard seam seems to be totaly invisible. Unlike the Gallic 'H' I received. This is definitely a winner. - Gaius Julius Caesar/Byron Angel

Well done Adrian :D ! The bowl seems to be perfect in proportions, not too wide and deep enough! I definitely want one if it stays like this! - Virilis/ Jyrki Halme
