1,000 Years of British Soldier’s Gear (13 Photos)

2 min read

Thom Atkinson, a U.K. photographer, spent nine months working on an incredibly detailed and interesting project, titled Soldiers’ Inventories. It consists of 13 photographs, each depicting the weapons, clothing, armor, and personal items that British soldiers have worn in battle over time.

The series starts with the Battle of Hastings, which took place in 1066, and ends in 2014, with the gear of the Royal Engineers, based in the Helmand Providence. Shields, chainmail, yo-yos, checkers, gas masks, guns and more make an appearance over the incredibly thorough collection of battle gear used over the course of the past millennium.
