The RA has been busy! Lots of data so far but fewer images. Still, it seems that great things are in store for us. Check out this entry on the famous "horned" helmet. Be sure to follow the "other items" link at bottom right on that page to see a side view of the helmet (!) as well as close shots of construction and decoration.

A search for "sword" turned up surprisingly few images but a staggering number of text-only listings. Among the photo highlights is an English basket-hilt sword of ca. 1540 (IX.4427). Look at all the images--inside, outside and full-length!

Looks like they're also posting RA-related videos on YouTube. Two pages so far!
