At the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Arms and Armor conservation lab, Adam gets up close with an example of real historical chain mail that the museum has restored. Conservator Seasn Belair walks Adam through the original construction of this piece--composed of over 20,000 hand made rings--and the lengths to which the department researched and implemented a restoration to preserve the mail and respect its origin.
