Hi Guys
I picked this up off an unrelated Facebook post, http://siberiantimes.com/science/casestudy...arthed-in-omsk/
Bronze Age bone armour, it is worth a read.

Oh, yeah, that looks familiar! Very cool find. (Though the use of the term "perfect condition" is amusing!) The idea of armor that never needs polishing is HIGHLY attractive...

Hi Matthew, it popped up on a UK HEMA FB page, thought here was more appropriate

"it dates from 3,900 to 3,500 years ago". Does that make it a contender for the oldest preserved armour? I personally don't know any armour as old as that.

Assuming we can trust the Russian archeologists to get the date right...

And the media :)

I'm sure I saw this in the media a year or two ago but can't remember where. Global warming should be good for archaeology in places like Siberia. All sorts of things should pop up as the permafrost disappears.

Edit: I did see it a couple of years ago. The above article is dated 2014.
