Soldiers' Kits, 1066 to the Present

Thom Atkinson, a photographer, has documented the personal gear carried by British soldiers from nearly a millennium ago until today. In addition to the photos of 13 kits, you can also find detailed descriptions of their contents. They show what Britons carried into battle across the world, from Jerusalem to Goose Green and Naseby. Pictured above is what an Anglo-Saxon warrior might heft at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
