Did you see the new posting about Ajax' Palace? It mentions a find of copper mail armour with your name on it. The second article, however, refers to armour of bronze strips :? Typical!

Well you can go for the bronze plates. The Egyptian nobles wore an armour of little bronze plates fitted together (lorica squamata in Roman terms). Mail shirts with rings were invented later.
