Modern historians describing the weapons of Russian soldiers at the time
of Alexander Nevsky represent them in lamellar armour. It was not
always like that. Until the middle of the last century
archaeologists only found mails. Therefore they considered that only
mails were worn by the soldiers. From the middle of the last century
they began to find parts of lamellar set sets.
I like the image of ordinary militia men from 1938 Eisenstein's film "Alexander Nevsky" the most.
The ordinary militias unlike the guards were armed depending on the income, often in the most primitive way. Wooden shield covered with bovine leather and fastened with iron bars on the rivets, mace and knife were the simple and effective weapons of an unprofessional warrior.
By the way, the music for this wonderful film was written by Sergey Prokofiev.
