A new study has shown that Alexander the Great may have worn a resilient type of kevlar-like armor known as linothorax.
The armor was made through the process of laminating together layers of linen and could have offered him ideal protection during his campaign to conquer most of the known world over two thousand years ago.
A Kevlar-like armor might have helped Alexander the Great (356–323 B.C.) conquer nearly the entirety of the known world in little more than two decades, according to new reconstructive archaeology research.
