The visitor to the Treasure Chamber of the Bavarian Army Museum will discover outstanding pieces from the old collection that are unique or extremely rare throughout the world. Among them are garments of simple soldiers from the 16th century, a magnificently designed parrying shield, the deer-stalking rifle of Count Palatine Ottheinrich and other precious exhibits. The focal point of the room is a suit of armour from the 14th century, a so-called “Plattenrock” or coat of plates. In addition to introductory essays, the volume offers a contribution on each exhibit in the Treasure Chamber. All objects are presented in detail and explained with numerous illustrations.
