Questions & AnswersFeatured questions submitted to Knightly Armes

Unfortunately, very little English armour has survived from the fifteenth century. In fact, if you consider all of the “complete” sets of European armour on display in museums around the world, an overwhelming majority of them are actually composites, meaning that they have been assembled from multiple sources, often not even made by the same armourer. Also, almost all of the leather and fabric bindings have been destroyed by the ravages of time. That is why funeral effigies and brasses sometimes provide the only real evidence of how armour was worn.
