A piece of horse’s head armour discovered in Caerleon priory field in 2010 has inspired a new display at the National Roman Legion Museum looking at the role of the horse in Roman warfare. The display Equus – The Horse at War which opens at the Museum in Caerleon on Friday 27 June tells how horses were used by the Roman army and draws parallels to the First World War almost 2,000 years later. The display which will include a replica horse’ head and a special reconstruction of the horse’s head armour, the chamfron, will be on display to see at the museum from 27 June – 30 January 2015.
