Abstract

This project documents the forms of European plate armor from 1450 to 1650, with an in-depth examination of a composite harness nominally of the late 1500s, Higgins Armory suit 207. Information on individual pieces of a suit of armor is organized in encyclopedia format with pictures and descriptions. The heterogeneous component pieces in suit 207 are documented in detail, with conclusions about their various origins.
