This is an archer's wrist guard or bracer made of leather that was found on the Newport Medieval ship. It was found at the base of the mast-step. It is very rare and is very detailed with a design including roses, hearts and latin inscriptions. The use of the bracer is to stop irritation and damage on the wristswhen an archer pulls back the bow string.
