    • Armor is vital because it protects you from getting killed.
      Armor is very expensive to buy.
      They have to fit perfectly, or things could go very wrong, like getting killed or injured.
      The nicer your armor was, the higher class you were.
      It was about 50 pounds, heavy, but light enough to allow you to fight.
      Made out of garments, chain mail, and iron plates.
      Covered the most vulnerable parts of the body.
      Armor
    • Sabatons- covered the feet
      Greaves- plates that covered the calves and ankles
      Poleyns- plates that protected the knee
      Cuisses- plates that covered the thighs
      Spurs- attached to the knights heel to help the horse obey your commands more easily
      Besagues- defends the armpits
      Rerebraces- protect the upper arm
      Vanbraces- protect the lower arm
      Hand Armor- gloves with metal plates that protect the knuckles
      Armor Continued
    • Breast plate- protect the chest
      Back plates- protect their back
      Faulds- attached to the breast plate, protect hips, abdomen, and lower back
      Visor- protects the face and eyes
      Bascinet- helmet with a skirt to protect the neck
      Armor Continued
    • Rehearse battling against each other before the real thing
      Leave 60+ soldiers to guard the castle
      Send ships loaded with canons a day before the battle to the opposing manor
      Make sure you have gunpowder, because any poorly trained knight can win with gunpowder
      Preparing for battle
    • Siege the Castle
      You attack the castle from all sides
      Offensive strategies
    • Castles were a big deal, in war they were the target.
      Some defensive features of the castle were:
      Drawbridge
      Barbican
      Portcullis
      Gatehouse
      A moat
      Crenellation
      Murder holes
      Rounded edges, to prevent hiding
      Castles
    • Used engines to attack, engineers found weak spots to attack.
      Trebuchet
      Ballista
      Catapult
      Mangonel
      Battering ram
      Saige tower
      When attacking, make the opposing team surrender.
      Offensive Tools
    • We will take captives and torture them for information on how to easily defeat them, and remember, we have no mercy…
      The chair of torture- spikes…
      Dunking- dunk you under water
      Tearing of the limbs- tear each of
      your limbs one by one
      Tortures
    • Pre-battle planning to prepare for the real thing, fighting with uneven numbers, on horse and off horse. 
      Keep a good 60 or more soldiers back to protect the castle from invasion, send the rest to the scene
      Send ships with cannons to attack the opposing castle, use naval skills to take down the castle 
      Use gunpowder (not in guns) for cannons and bombs, any poorly trained knight could win with gunpowder 
      Take captives and torture them for information 
      Have a variety of knights, foot soldiers, and archers 
      Fighting Strategies
    • Try to split up the formations by enticing one side to come somewhere and the other goes to the other side 
      Use pike men to kill footmen 
      AVOID HASTY RETREAT! Try to make the opposing men to make a hasty retreat, it will make it easier to kill them 
      Archers protect the front of our men
      Fighting Strategies Continued
    • We had many supplies for when we went to battle:
      An infirmary
      Extra men and women to be nurses to tend to people in the infirmary
      Medicines and herbs to cure the sick and injured people
      Blessed medicines that could cure almost anything
      Holy water used for many different occasions
      Extra men to fight, horses, weapons, and food
      Supplies and Logistics
