In Stockholm's main history museum was an exhibition about the Battle of Visby (or Gotland) in 1361. The battle is remarkable because many of those who died in it were thrown into one of five mass graves with all their kit on, and these were dug up in 1928-30. I also complain about a lack of information and labelling in museums.
In response to comments, in which people insisted that the armour shown in this video is 'lamellar' and not 'brigandine', I scrutinised some photographs in close-up and wrote to the museum. I have had a reply.I have had a reply from the museum. The lumpy parts are corrosion, and the smooth parts are modern plates added to hold the armour together. The finds are very fragile, and the little wire lacings are modern, and hold the original plates to the modern backing plates. It seems that these are indeed brigandines or 'coats of plates'. However, another armour from grave 25 is far more lamellar-like and has been reconstructed that way, but was not on display in this exhibition.
