UK-based photographer Thom Atkinson’s series Soldiers’ Inventories – an attempt to explore “the mythology surrounding Britain’s relationship with war.”

With the help of historians, reenactment specialists, collectors and private soldiers, the series (featuring soldiers’ kits laid out and documented in detail here) span 948 years from Hastings to Helmand Province.

Above: typical soldier’s kit from the Battle of Hastings (1066), Siege of Jerusalem (1244), Agincourt (1415), Bosworth (1485), Malplaquet (1709), Arnhem (1944), The Falklands (1982), Helmand (2014).
