HELMS, WEAPONS & ARMOURS
 

 

Ancient Battles artisanally handcrafts almost everything: armors and peaces of armor, shields, weapons (spears, swords, daggers and knives, axes, bows & arrows), clothes, etc... Some of our helmets come from established sellers, then customized and reshaped for authenticity and security. That is why our procuctions are so unique !
