Hi everyone,

I'm trying to do some research into the gear that was available and in use in Europe in then medieval or middle ages. I know, it's a broad section of time, but despite having a good search on Google, I've been coming up blank.

What I would love to know is where I can find some good, reliable information about the gear of the time. I've had conflicting sources saying that the bits were common, and others saying that they were not.

Any help would be great,
Thanks in advance :)
