The first suits of armour consisted of plate steel that was alternated with chainmail parts, this fauld is an example of that. Plackarts offered protection to the lower torso and were combined with a hauberk and, later, with a breastplate. A clear example of a late 14th century plackart can be seen in the Churburg harness.
This plackart is made of 1,6 cm thick steel and has leather straps for extra comfort.
