Armor includes helmets, possible shields, possible greaves, and sheaths for blades.  Not much remains in this category, most armor was probably constructed of boiled leather, or textiles with metal disks attached.  Since leather and textiles are perishable, these do not remain in the archaeological record.  Later examples of armor include scale armor made by sewing overlapping metal oblongs onto a linnen background.  

Sheilds were made with wickerwork, boiled leather in a frame, or metal disks.  They range in size from arm length and circular to body length and rectangular.  Metal sheilds were usually small and circular because of the weight.  

Helmets started out as cloth or boiled leather caps and transitioned into metal helmets.  See helmets as a subcategory for more information.

Sheaths were also probably constructed of reeds/leather as evidenced by psudomorphs on the blades.  A few metal sheaths do remain.
