Abstract

The project group created a twelve-minute videodocumentary about the evolution of armor from Ancient Greece through the Medieval period to the Renaissance with respect to society, technology and warfare. The videodocumentary is based on historical research, compiled by the group in a substantial report. The documentary, to be displayed at the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, MA, incorporates images of the museum's artifacts, historical and modern artwork, footage of armored re-enactors, and an original script and musical score.
