In conjunction with the Higgins Armory Museum, this project created a web resource covering the museum's collection of arms and armor of Europe during 1500 to 1550. The web resource includes research documents on the period's general history, military history, and arms and armor. Pictures were taken of the artifacts and integrated into an already existing database that contained information on each piece. The web resource allows people around the globe to not only view the artifacts from the collection, but to also learn about the history behind the objects.
