Ever wondered what kind of equipment a soldier brings when he goes to battle? Take a look at the series ‘Soldier Inventories’ and be overwhelmed by the number of items these warriors carried to war. In the series, photographer Thom Atkinson documents 13 kits that belonged to soldiers who fought between 1066 and 2014.

Looking at the different inventories, you’ll get an idea of the period and the type of war they fought. Aside from military-issued items, you can also find personal effects of the soldiers that used to own them.

You can see the full inventory of each kit here.
