Im interested in how much plate and what exactly plate elements have been worn by men-at-arms/soldiers at the turn of the 14th century in different parts of Europe.
Ive already established that a typical man at arms wore some kind of helmet, usually a kettle hat, and a form of hourglass gauntlets, usually with simplified/chainmail/no protection of the fingers.
Were there any other elements of plate worn by men at arms? Im especially interested in any evidence of the usage of closed helms or some sort of face/throat protection worn by them. How about joint protection?
Any findings would be welcome, same for iconography, only in that case i would ask for the context and percise dating of the icon. Sometimes the iconography showed people in bizzare armour, so called "mock armour", to ridicule the depicted person.
