Could you find me pics of hauberks (especially with long sleeves) in museums?
I clearly remember a pic of several hauberks hanging form a roof of a museum, but i can't recall where.
Can you help me?

Thanks

Augusto

What period and region? There are a *lot* of hauberks in museums, but many are from 17th+ century from India or something. I'm guessing that's not what you're after?

Two pictures from the Reichsstadtmuseum of Rothenburg. I am not sure about the century, but I guess it's late german or italian 15th century stuff, because it was displayed accompanied by lances and halberds from that period.

Best regards,
Thomas

The detail photo of the hauberk from Rothrnburg looks like a fine rivetted weave, you can just see the slightly thicker overlap and in a few cases, the rivets are visible.

But the cut of the hauberk in the second picture looks like mail armor from Sudan, with the typical high and wide gap in the front and back. There and in the 19th. century they also used some butted mail. (there was an eyewitness-record/article about the making of sudanese mail somewhere in the web, I will try to find it for posting. The hauberk shape as typical sudanese can be found in Robinson's book "Oriental armor").

Stunning work!! Eek! Eek!
The rivets are quite invisibile!

Hi Felix,

I wasn't that interested in maille, when I took the photos, so I didn't check the labels. I doubt, that they would have labeled it sudanese, even if it is... Wink Both pictures above are from the same piece of maille. I checked my album and found another maille from Rothenburg. I added it and zoomed a part of the original photo.
