The Kid Should See This

Dressing in late 14th century armor

Watch more with these video collections:

A video showing how to dress in and wear armor (harness) from late 14th century. The harness is a detailed reconstruction based on the effigy of the Black Prince (1330-1376) in the Canterbury Cathedral, other relevant effigies, paintings in 14th century manuscripts and late 14th century armour displayed in The Royal Armories in Leeds.

History enthusiasts Ola Onsrud and Kristine Onsrud recreate the diligent process of dressing for battle in the late 1300s in England. In the video below, he takes the armor for a spin on a horse for some target practice.

Next: Combat demonstrations in fifteenth-century suits of armor, Elephants of War: Elephant armor from India, circa 1600, and getting dressed in 18th century England.
