And some armor...
The first shot is the Pitt-Rivers lamellar armor that LaRocca shows in his book. Here it is in its case at the museum.
Following that is mail in one of the chapels at Tsurpu, then a helmet there.
Then, the "obverse" and "reverse" of one of my cane shields. Although faded, you can see the starburst pattern on a flat shield as those found at Tsaparang and like the one LaRocca shows on pp. 92-94, but the reinforcements or struts are much wider and cruder than those.
