Academie Duello Historical Museum

Plate Armour

The latter part of the Middle Ages saw the pinnacle of design in plate armour, more often used for tournament and spectacle than for war. Beneath the beauty and craftsmanship, however, remained the serious function of defending the body from harm. Each piece of this suit of plate armour is identified by its name and its role.
