Abstract

The Crusades were a major turning point in history which evoked a rapid evolution of arms and armors that persisted throughout the middle ages. The focus of this project is to outline the historical, technological, and geographical context that lead to such an evolution. The information we collect will be presented on a continually growing website developed by previous groups. A great helm will also be crafted, in a way that captures the style and spirit of the ancient craft of blacksmithing.
