Armour: Time of the Wars of the Roses

 

Sir Roger Staunton 1458 Unknown Knight and Lady 1460 Sir Roger and Lady St Leger 1470
Note enormous couters (elbows), a fashion only rarely found. They must have been easily damaged in battle. Note also that chain mail has begun to appear again, particularly around the neck. 1470 was the year before the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury.
