Another type of armor was a “jack-of-plates” where many small, square pieces of iron (similar to Cheez-It crackers) were sewn onto a canvas vest. In this video, Jamestown conservator Dan Gamble describes how he cleaned a jack-of-plates that archaeologists found. This was a long and careful project that took him over a year to finish!
