The Wisby Armour*

  • Ellis H. Minns
Hide All

1 Surely not as translated, p. 23, ‘who fell into the hands of the Danes’, but ‘fell (i.e. were slain) by the hands of the Danes’, a Hebraism copied from the Vulgate, e.g. 1. Chron. XX, 7, qui ceciderunt in manu David (found for me by Canon W. L. Knox).

2 See M. Garbutt, ‘Japanese Armour from the Inside’, Japanese Society of London, 1912, XI, 134–85, esp. p. 143 for remarks about the disadvantages of lacing.
