This project was a study of the development of armors from 8th century BC to 4th century AD. The project was mainly focused on the evolution of armors in Europe, for which a wealth of information was present and the use of armors was extensive. To fulfill the breadth of the project, we also broaden our research to some large cultures in the regions of West Asia. The designs, metalworking techniques, materials, and improvements of armors were the emphasis of this project. Fabrication of a replica of an armor was also undertaken using only the technique allowed by the most simplest of tools in order to simulate the ancients' way of armor making. A database in the form of a website was created containing all the information relating to this project.
