|William Marshal II|
I'll be moving to a more permanent blog as soon as I get a moment, together with more pics but these are some e.g.'s of early 13thC armour for now.
I was interested in William Marshal's mail glove with fingers - picture 2. It's the earliest of the effigies. William died in 1219.
