Abstract

The purpose of the project is to chronicle the history of broadswords, rapiers, and smallswords, and to design an exhibit which would be displayed at the Higgins Armory Museum. Through the use of the artifacts on hand and the research material found in the armory's library, we hope to accurately convey the history behind these types of swords to the public.
