THE MEDIEVAL FIGHTING MAN: COSTUME AND EQUIPMENT 800-1500

Meticulous use is made of the sources available to enable the materials, colours and patterns used for reconstructed clothing to represent the ‘real thing’ as accurately as possible. Fortunately, great numbers of medieval weapons and pieces of armour survived and can now be viewed in displays, and these form the basis of the arms presented in this book.
