Line 1: Line 1:
'''Armour''' is protective plates or [[clothing]] meant to shield a human from intentionally inflicted harm. Armour has been in use for all recorded history, beginning with [[hide]]s, [[leather]], [[bone]], progressing to [[bronze]], [[steel]], [[ballistic cloth]], [[ceramic]]s, and depleted uranium. Armour has been primarily a way to protect oneself from harm in [[combat]] and military engagements.
 
 
Armour parts may be manufactured using a wide variety of materials and forms. During the [[Middle Ages]], [[cloth]], [[soft leather]], [[boiled leather]], [[chainmail]] and [[steel plate]]s were often used.
 
 
In [[Europe]]an history, common armour types were the [[lorica segmentata]], the [[chainmail]] [[hauberk]], the [[gambeson]] and later the [[full steel plate]] armour used by late [[medieval]] [[knight]]s. In [[feudal]] [[Japan]], laquered [[lamellar]] armours were popular.
