Roman Tour Paragraph

Katie Belic

Roman war clothing was practical, for example, lighter cloth, such as linen for hot climates and heavier cloth, such as wool for colder climates. They wore trousers, Braccae, a style of pants, made from wool. Also, they would wear a loincloth, which was a one-piece male garment made of wool or linen. Socks were common apparel for marching, they fully covered their feet or would be without a toe or heel. Leg wrappings and leg bindings were strips of material wrapped from the ankle up to the calf of the leg which covered the soldiers. Their Military Tunic was a short sleeved, wide, shirt-like, undergarment made of a long piece of rectangular wool, cotton, or linen. The military belt was worn around the waist and held the dagger and the apron, which was held in the front of the belt. Their clothing acquired leather lappets, an apron / skirt of decorated strips that hung from the belt to the lower waist. They were made up of leather strips and heavily studded with metal. Offering little protection, the apron would be a source of noise or decoration by using tokens and discs to show the wars he had fought in.
Of course soldiers had protective armor, which covered their clothes. The armor consisted of a helmet made of metal (usually iron) and shoulder, arm and leg guards.
They would wear a woolen cloak which would be open in the front and would clasp around the shoulders. For extra warmth they would wrap a scarf around their neck or body to prevent chaffing. Lastly, they had military sandals or boots, which would be strong with the addition of iron hobnails used for the miles of marching the soldiers would go through. During the Gallic War, Julius Caesar became a military leader. The
War began after an attempt to preserve stability on the borders of the Roman province of Transalpine Gaul. The most famous revolt was the last one, led by Vercinqetorix. (Most famous of the Gauls) At the start of the war there was three sections: the Belgae, Celts(called Gauls by the Romans), and the Aquitani. Each were populated by large and separate tribes. They were often at war with each other and had difficult relationships. The First Gallic Revolt was taken place on the Maritime north west-coast which was dominated by the Veneti tribe. The revolt began when they seized Q. Velanius and T. Silius.
