     -------

    It was not until the tailed celeta or French type of salade had obtained an established reputation as a head-piece that attention was paid to the necessity of finding some form of protection for the lower part of the face. It would appear that the high standard of chain mail fashioned as a collar standing rigidly up round the neck, though popular throughout the XVth century, was not considered of sufficient protective power; with the result that plates of metal were added to a plate gorget to give full protection to the lower half of the face. In this way was the bevor evolved.

    Tip: Armour such as this, was often tied onto a knight's interior arming jacket (jack or gambeson) by leather thongs. This made the armour more secure, stopped it sliding and shifting on the body, and helped distribute the weight more evenly. This gorget does come with two holes for this leather thong to attach so you may also wish to drill two corresponding holes in the breast plate you'll wear below, to tie the two together. If you're going to attach it to a garment or jack, in order to prevent cloth fraying, also sew a leather patch on the area of your interior shirt, jack or gambeson where the thongs lace through.
