Disabled soldiers: Battlefield causes and social consequences of wounding

Irina Metzler speaking at the 600th Anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt Conference, held at the University of Southampton, on August 3, 2015

“Medieval warfare, no doubt, had its share of casualties, like most warfare. However, the sources, whether they are historical, or financial, or literary records, or art, only seldom mention the impairment of knights and other warriors of all ranks, as the result of combat.”
