Medieval Armour, Armor Dungeon Items & More
A Brief History on the Development of Armor
War has been a part of human culture since the beginning of time. In a battle or war,
tools or devices are used in order to gain an advantage. An unarmed man was known as
a dead man.
Therefore, the need to develop some type of protection was needed to help stop or at least
That defensive protective covering was known as armor, also spelled armour.
Armor is usually made of metal, wood or leather and is worn to protect the
body against weapon attacks. Protecting oneself in battle has always been a concern
for any soldier. Medieval knights were no exception. Armor helped to define knights
as a military unit and social class. In fact, during the Middle Ages, armoring oneself
was very expensive and only the wealthy could afford to do so. Not only this, but the more
one had to spend on armor, the better it was made and easier to maneuver. Leather, the most
common form of protection, was the most used, least expensive, and least appreciated.
Leather was also used to make shields and helmets. Again, this was the "basic," form of

than the other black smith's creations. A good suit of armor, shield or pair of boots was
cherished by families. Often, these items would be passed down from family to family as
If an article of armor was good enough to protect a man through a battle, his family would
take tremendous care in keeping it safe, clean, and sturdy. With the discovery of
new metals, armor became more durable and less cumbersome for a knight.
