Product Description

Details

Belt not included

Mail was thought to have been invented by the Celts. The earliest example was found in a Celtic Chieftain's burial in Romania. It was a popular form of defence for the warrior elite of the Viking and Early Medieval periods. It is often (wrongly) referred to as chainmail but this terminology was first introduced by Sir Walter Scott in 1822 in his novel "The Fortunes of Nigel". In the medieval period it was simply known as "Mail". 

Chainmaille Chausses were developed to protect the legs during the early Medieval period. They were especially essential for cavalry soldiers whose legs were a prime target. They were expensive though and were only really associated with knights of the period.
