Plate mail armor is awesome

Shawn sent me this video “Le combat en armure au XVe siècle”

I was surprised how agile and nimble one could be in plate mail. The level of mobility was not what I expected. Quite cool.

The one thought that kept going through my mind was how deaf the combatants became over time. All that clanking must have been hell on your eardrums. 🙂
