Brigandine from Azov

Historical Sources:

It is a typical Western European armor, dated back to the end of the 60-70s of the XIVth century. The fact that most of the archaeological analogies refer the north of Europe, especially Visby, is explained by the point that most of the known western armor of the XIVth century was found and studied by B. Todermann. The origin of this armor, taking into account the place where it was found, is most likely Italy. In addition to a set of similarities between the Azov armor and armor from Visby, there are two significant differences. The Azov armor has the entire back covered with iron plates, while Gotland armor of the same type doesn’t have it. This armor has an essential detail, namely almost square plate with a side of 10.5 cm, two hinges with a preserved pin are welded to its surface. This plate, judging by the Western European analogues of the second half of the XIVth century was used to fasten the chain that was attached at its other end to the hilt of a sword, dagger and a large "heraldic" helmet. All these differences suggest that Gotland armor belonged to free rich peasants, while Azov armor, which is heavier and connected with "heraldic" helmet, could probably belong to a feudal lord, or a knight.
