Iron armor has long been known from excavations of Kofun-period (AD 300-710) tombs in Japan, but new excavations of iron armor in South Korea from the mid-1980s have thrown up new questions of the relationship between these two areas in iron resources and technology, armor manufacture, military activity, and trade. This article reviews the armor typology in terms of origins and influences, examines technological and social issues in terms of specific site excavations, and it reviews the arguments for trade and exchange between the Yamato and Kaya polities. Environmental data are proposed as contributing to the shifts in manufacturing loci against the background of constant socio-political competition among the surrounding states.
