    Coat od plates No. 1 from Korsbetningen. This is probably the most widely known of the 24 coat-of-plates from the mass graves of the Battle of Visby Sweden, (1361). The characteristic horizontal plates protecting the lower chest and stomach can be found on sculptures and illuminations contemporary with the event. However, only 7 of the coat-of-plates are of this type, the rest consisting of only vertical plates. (Antikvarisk-topografiska arkivet, Stockholm)
