Gothic Armor (also known as Gothic Plate)
Time Period: 15th-16th century
Location: Germany
Common Construction: Steel

Gothic armor is by some considered the pinnacle of European medieval armor. The defining feature of the armor is that it is "fluted" which provides increasing strength using less material. It is the same concept that is used in corrugated cardboard today.

Gothic armor has slightly different fluting patterns than that attributed to the reign of Maximilian I, and celebrated armorers such as Francisco and Gabrielle Merate, and Conrad Lochner. Italian armor during the same period is described as "smoother" or less "spiky" and England had their own armoury in Greenwich, England. However, the term gothic plate is sometimes applied to all armor during this period without regional distinction.

I went to school in Poland, and it was very siilmar to a French school: public scolding , script writing, lot of memorization without much explanation. I felt awful, I hated school! The more freedom I had with my learning methods, the more I thrived. I don't see how this would have benefited me but maybe there are children who actually prefer to learn this way because maybe they feel it makes them stronger? I don't know. This is not for me, and I hope my children won't have to deal with a school like that. http://gxfusdsopl.com [url=http://ymcdbnemn.com]ymcdbnemn[/url] [link=http://snkmgtfcii.com]snkmgtfcii[/link]
