Plumbata: Rome’s Hail of Leaden Death

Available for purchase on Kindle.

This book deals with all the experiments I have undertaken in making and testing plumbata and using ballistic gel to see what sort of wounds plumbata would cause. The results are dramatic and frightening.

    Dear David,

    I am interested in plumbatae and I recently published findings from the Serbia which you can see at http://bg.academia.edu/MiroslavVujovic/Papers/1249226/THE_PLUMBATAE_FROM_SERBIA. Naturally I would very much like to get your e-book on pumbatae but unfortunately it is not possible to do from Serbia through amazon.com. Is there any other way to buy your book? Best Regards

    As e-book formats emerged and proliferated, some garnered support from major software companies such as Adobe with its PDF format, and others supported by independent and open-source programmers. Different readers followed different formats, most of them specializing in only one format, and thereby fragmenting the e-book market even more. “*
