The following short study will brief on details and insight about four experimental reconstructions of Mediterranean Bronze age exotic weapons and three panoplies (armour) that KORYVANTES Association has worked on since 2011, as well as provide a brief on experiences from testing them as part of the bronze age Warrior armour system(s). The work of the Association and the panoplies/weapons reconstructions are part of a larger PhD thesis that is under development by Association members.
We will present the reconstruction and usage of axini (?), epsilon-axe, navmaho xisto (?) and Hittite warthog axe, as well as make a brief presentation of 3 Bronze era panoplies: Mycenaean, Hittite/Trojan, Sea People. All presented reconstructions of panoplies and weapons are custom built by the Association armourer.
