Up To The Hilt: European Swords And Daggers
Join curator Robert Woosnam-Savage and handle European swords and daggers specially chosen from the Royal Armouries' collections.
The seminar will illustrate the development of the sword and dagger over 3,000 years and the dilemma between creating weapons for cut or thrust, or both.
Come to grips with important and unique weapons from the Bronze Age and the Middle Ages as well as later rapiers, basket-hilts and small-swords.
You will also handle hunting and military swords and have the rare chance to examine original major fencing manuals.
