The purpose of this project was to produce a "virtual exhibit" for the Higgins Armory dealing with the use of arms and armor in the works of Shakespeare, specifically Hamlet. Aspects of this project included analyzing the text of the play, researching Renaissance and modern theatrical uses of weaponry, and photographing artifacts. These three aspects were combined to create a website linked from the Higgins main site serving as an attraction for Higgins patrons.
