The evolution of body armour is a fascinating subject from the stylistic changes in Roman armour to the development of modern bullet proof vests, sometimes the failures tell us as much as the successes do. Max Virtus has written a really interesting article on one of those failures that never made it to the battlefield in his article about the World War I Brewster body armour.
I currently work for the University of Melbourne Australia as an academic specialist - curriculum designer in the Faculty of Arts. Where I work with other academics, primarily in history, to advise and assist subject coordinators in redesigning subject syllabi, structures and teaching delivery. Previously I taught Ancient History and Classical Languages at another Australian university for seven years full-time. I have taught various aspects of Roman, Mycenaean and Greek history and created courses on Barbarian Europe, Terrorism and Rebellion in the Ancient World and Ancient Warfare.
