BATTLE OF AGINCOURT
This fine fifteenth-century manuscript illustration of the Battle of Agincourt shows a wide range of armor and weapons.
Most of the foot soldiers are wearing brigandines, as shown by the pattern of rivets on the fabric, and poleyns on their knees.
They are armed with the longbow and the sword.
The mounted knights also wear brigandines but with armor on their arms and legs.
All are shown wearing simple helmets, sallets or kettle hats.
