by Fabrice DE BACKER, in Res Antiquae 18, 2021.

The artefacts discovered in excavations, with the textual and visual evidence, provide the support for a series of deductions on the manufacture of a scale-armour. Field experimentation gave an opportunity to the present author to understand how the craftsmen realized several different types of scale – armour, and the tools and resources that were employed to serve that purpose. This paper will provide some elements on the organisation and the equipment of a scale-armour manufacturer workshop during the Neo-Assyrian period.
