A Royal Armouries Conference in association with The Battlefields Trust

This interactive study day will examine the process of interpreting pieces recovered from battlefield sites and especially how to tap in to the wealth of expert knowledge in the field of the study of arms and armour.

It will highlight the range of assistance that museum curators and arms and armour specialists can offer archaeologists, military historians and indeed anyone who has an interest in interpreting material discovered through battlefield excavations.

Archaeologists and historians eminent in the field of the study of battlefields and related sites will discuss aspects of the role which can be played by museum collections and staff in helping interpret objects recovered from them. They will tackle a wide variety of fascinating topics covering the period from the Norman Conquest to World War One and sites including the battles of Fulford (1066) and Towton (1461), an Elizabethan wreck off Alderney and The Somme.

The conference will also offer a unique opportunity to examine and discuss battlefield related pieces from the Royal Armouries collections.

I wish I could go! Cry $40 for a day of study and a chance to handle pieces from the RA collection. Some of our UK friends will have to attend in my place.
