Hello Wikipedia, I am a student of a history class and have recently made an edit to this article. I felt that it needed a history section so I wrote one for it. I also rewrote the description for the article because I could not find the citation for it outside of the dictionary entry, which I kept. This is my first article, so the syntax and all are new to me, so let me know if there's anything I could have done/do better. Thank you.

As a child I heard the story of the Elizabethan poet and gallant Sir Philip Sidney, who saw that his officer was riding into battle without his greaves and so removed his own. Perhaps as a result, he received a mortal wound to his leg. While he lay dying, he again showed his nobility by declining water in favor of another dying soldier, a commoner, saying "Thine need is greater than mine." He received a huge funeral. Anyway, it's one of the rare times that greaves feature in a story. Since we mention Goliath's use of them, this might be worth including too. Will Beback talk 10:39, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Links at the Bottom
At the bottom, in the list of links [Components of Medieval Armor], there's a link under the neck armour to something called a pixane. The link is invalid; it leads to a page on Mail (armour) wherein there is no instance of the word pixane. When I do a search for the word pixane, there does not appear to be any such page. aKhan2014 — Preceding undated comment added 13:43, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
A possibly incorrectly formulated sentence
"Early in the fourteenth century, many illustrations were found"
This sentence gives an impression that the illustrations were found in the 14th century, but I think it was supposed to mean that the illustration were from that time, and they were found much later. Am I right?--Adûnâi (talk) 15:07, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
