WHAT IS IT LIKE TO FIGHT IN ARMOR?

So what was it really like to fight in armor?

We’ve all seen it done i.n the movies. But how realistic is it?

As you’ll see from the following demonstration medieval knights could have been surprisingly mobile.

And fighting tactics were quick and utterly ruthless.

The video was made by the National Museum of the Middle Ages in Cluny, France and the armor is modeled on that worn by two actual French knights of the fifteenth century.

  1. We do SCA, and have lots of friends doing just that. 🙂 also have friends who go to fight in the Battle of the Nations… Heaps of vids online. Lots of fun. bash and smash and fall down. Fights usually over in about 3-5 minutes, for a full melee as well! 🙂
    Thanks Colin!
