Description: The knight in shining armor conjures a thousand images and captures the imagination. While the Middle Ages was roughly a thousand years (500-1500 AD/CE), the steel plate armor associated with the knight was in use only from 1350 AD/CE onwards. What were the strengths of armor? What were its weaknesses? Learn about the arms and armor that were used by knights and soldiers of the past in this interactive program.
