A Knight’s Tale at SIS Regensburg

A Lesson with Chain Mail and Shield

Students in SIS Regensburg’s first grade were visited by an actual knight recently. He told the students about life in the Middle Ages and he even brought a suit of armour for them to see and touch. Everybody marvelled at the intricately woven chain mail shirt and the thick shield. While putting on each item of the suit of armour, the knight explained its function and why it was important for a medieval fighter.
