Greek Greaves

Greaves were a standard part of a Greek warrior’s armor. The primary use of Greek greaves was to protect the tibia from attack. The tibia is very close to the skin; therefore it is extremely vulnerable to any kind of attack. Greaves usually consisted of a metal exterior with an inner felt padding. The felt padding was particularly important because, without it, any blow would transfer directly from the metal plating to the shin.
