A Real Case of Battle Fatigue

If you consider the armor that warriors needed to wear five hundred or so years ago, you can well imagine having a case of battle fatigue. Those outfits were heavy! And not easy to get into. Here's the proof:

Those who have an interest in armor may have visited the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester before it closed. It was a great day trip for parents and children. After the museum closed, the collection was integrated into the Worcester Art Museum. So, if you plan a trip there now, you'll get not only armor, but art!

To learn more about armor look into downloading The History of Chivalry and Armour With 6 Full-Color Plates by F. Kottenkamp [eBook], or look on our shelves for Armor by Charlotte and David Yue [J 355.8 YUE]. Armor was used in non-European countries, too. Look for The Samurai: Warriors of Medieval Japan, 940-1600 by Anthony J. Bryant [952.025 BRY].
