These were pieces of armor designed to protect the upper arms (over the elbow). They first appeared as part of the Byzantium Military armor in the 11th Century. By the early 14th Century, Rerebrace components began to appear on European armor. Often segmented pieces, they were designed to move naturally with the wearer's arms.
