Chain maille is thought to have been invented before the 5th century by the ancient Celts. The name is derived from the french 'maille' which is derived from th latin word 'macula' meaning 'mesh of a net'. There are three main types of chain mailed European, Japanese and Persian. The Byzantine weave comes under European chain maille.
