Product Description


The use of leather armour reinforced with metal is believed to be the reason why Victorian people thought there was "studded" armour. This confusion has come in many cases up to the present day where we can easily find references in role-playing games or literature. The truth is there are historical samples of leather or cloth armour riveted to metal bands for reinforcement and it's this that probably led to the Victorian's misconceptions. It´s a logical evolution in the transitional armour age and some examples can be seen on the Günther von Schwarzburg´s (1349) and Sir Thomas Cheyne´s (1375) funerary brasses.
