Archaeologists in Switzerland have discovered a well-preserved 14th-century gauntlet near Kyburg Castle. The right-hand gauntlet, which measures around 14 inches long, is made of individual iron plates held together with side rivets. It is one of only a few 14th-century gauntlets found in Switzerland and is in surprisingly good condition. The left-hand gauntlet, however, is in much worse condition. The discovery also revealed a medieval weaving cellar and a blacksmith’s forge containing various metal objects. The identity of the gauntlet’s owner and why so few have been found remain a mystery.
