Late medieval battle gauntlets from Visby
These impressive late medieval battle gauntlets were made from a find that came from Korsbetningen (a small Gotland island of Sweden).
Outside the city walls was a battlefield where a fight took place between Swedish Gotland and Denmark on 27 July 1361. The Danish king Waldemar IV was victorious and successfully conquered Gotland.
The fighting glove is made of 1.5mm thick steel and high quality leather. The back of the hand, the knuckles, the entire thumb and the fingertips are equipped with steel plates which are riveted to the leather. The inner glove is made of soft leather and is comfortable to wear.
A leather strap and a buckle have been attached to the back, which serves to fasten the glove to the arm. This is adjustable in size and can thus be individually adapted to the arm.
