Leather Armour

Post by Master Jarvis »

Morning all
Are there any extant examples of cuirboulli armour from the medieval period? I can find several sets of instructions which tell me how to make a conjectural version (http://www.daviddfriedman.com/Medieval/ ... proved.htm, for example) but cannot find any information on what to make.
Do any examples survive? Does anyone know of any depictions of the armour in manuscripts or artworks?

Thanks in advance for any replies,
Master Jarvis
