Historical Background

Vambraces (French language avant-bras, sometimes known as lower cannons in the Middle Ages) are "tubular" or "gutter" defenses for the forearm, developed first in the ancient world by the Romans, but only formally named during the early 14th century, as part of a suit of plate armor. They were made of either leather, sometimes reinforced with longitudinal strips of hardened hide or metal (a crafting method named "splinted armor"), or from a single piece of worked steel and worn with other pieces of armor. Vambraces are generally called forearm guards, with or without separate couters.

Archers often wear Bracers, a variant of vambraces, to protect their arms while shooting.
