Abstract [en]

The excavations of the mass graves from the Battle of Visby 1361, revealed besides alarge amount of human remains also a large amount of armour pieces. The numberof preserved armour pieces from the 14th Century are limited, making the findsunique. Since the number of preserved gauntlets are even fewer and because the historyof why the finds ended up in the mass grave is unclear, gauntlet 17 from themass graves became the focus of this study; with the creation of a constructiondrawing of the gauntlet as the end goal. X-rays of the corroded fragments were successfullyused to reconstruct the design of the individual parts of the gauntlet. Thedesign of gauntlet 17 largely resembles the other gauntlets from the Battle of Visbyfindings, but differs in several key details from the other gauntlets. There is a variationbetween all the gauntlets regarding the disposition and design of plates. It alsobecame evident that gauntlet 17 was broken. This is interesting in regard to the subjectof why the armour pieces were deposited in the mass graves.
