Ancient Warfare: Reader\'s questions Special?

Hey Jasper;
How about an article on the Light Armed cohorts for a future issue? These guys have really been neglected in reenacting although they are frequently mentioned from the late Republician era and into the Imperial period.

Re: Roman Reenactment theme
An article on Roman Leather armour. Collect together all the "evidence" that has been presented and debunk each item one at a time. After this have a discussion on the few credible bits of evidence that remain.

I agree with Dan I would like to SEE what we do and do not have before I step into the arena again with leather loricas again. I do like having information instead of guesstimation.

....and while we are at it, what is the evidence, beyond a couple of casual references, for 'light armed cohorts' ? If normal Legionaries, left aside their body armour for a particular task, would these not merit such a description?

I will open a topic in the History section for the Light armed cohorts for the possible lengthy discussion.
