Abstract

This project researched and developed an instructional DVD on the martial arts of medieval and Renaissance Europe. The DVD was created to accompany the Higgins Armory collection in its new home at the Worcester Art Museum and will assist future instructors and students in the Higgins Swordplay program. The DVD provides a general introduction to the history and principles of combat, as well as an introduction to cut-and-thrust swords, rapiers, daggers and wrestling, and staff weapons.
