Medieval Armor

Medieval armor, feudal armies in Europe from the 11th to the 14th century produced a core group of premium fighting men — the mounted knights. Over time, they became more heavily armored and reliant upon the shattering force of horse, lance and wide-bladed sword. In their wake, massed ranks of foot-soldiers engaged the enemy with long polearms (essentially weapons mounted on the end of a long pole), hoping to dismount and finish off any enemy knight. The fighting was brutal and bloody, conducted in a crush of jabbing, thrusting weapons.
