This supplement, which appeals to students’ almost innate interest in medieval armor, explores the evolution of medieval armor from mail (used in Macbeth’s time) to plate and draws students’ attention to details of the armor and weapons depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry. Includes a worksheet with fifteen questions. Written by Stephen Fliegel, Curator of Medieval Art, Cleveland Museum of Art.
