Product Description

Details

On 22th July of 1361 Valdemar IV of Denmark sent a group of armed men to Gotland coast. Poorly armed locals didn´t stand a chance against Valdemar´s invading troops. Archaeological remains of this battle have been described as "one of the most fearsome revelations of a medieval battle known to archaeologists". There are many studies about the armour used in this battle due to the large amount of pieces found on the bodies buried in the mass graves. Brigandines offer protection equivalent to that of a cuirass but allow more flexibility because of the superposition of bands along a textile or leather body. This brigandine model (aka Type I) is possibly one of the most popular and well known among the pieces used on Wisby battlefield. This item is popular with reenactors and is great for re-enactment.
