Arms & Armour Research

We are very fortunate to have a wealth of original weapons and armours which have been preserved through the centuries in collections around the world. Studying these fascinating objects provides valuable insights into the way that they were used, as well as the people who used them.

The study of arms and armour is inherently interdisciplinary. A sword or piece of armour is at once an effective tool used in combat, a feat of superior engineering, and a work of art. Our exploration of these objects will delve into the realms of History, Art History, Archaeology, Forensics, and Materials Science to name just a few.

Tune in for articles and videos featuring showcases of interesting artefacts, cutting-edge scholarly research, explorations of museums and collections, and interviews with collectors and specialists.
