PRAETORIANS ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE THE EAGLE OF LEGIO II PARTHICA, IMMAE, AD 218

Late empire legionary of the 5th century CE. By the fifth century the barbarian nature of the army was barely disguised. Germanic warriors dominated the ranks and looked the part. Armour has been given up for greater speed and mobility, as the mobile field army needed to move fast to head off any invaders.  Gone are any curved, square shields. Gone is the sophisticated design of the helmet. Gone is the short stabbing sword. Instead the soldiers is armed with a heavy Germanic spatha.
