Higgins Armory Museum
This IQP team researched the history of armor collecting, the armor manufacturing process, the biomechanics of wearing armor, and the physical properties of armor's protection. This knowledge was applied to the study of HAM 429, a non-homogeneous armor harness of full plate armor from the Higgins Armory Museum's collection. This harness had never before been studied in depth. The culmination of this study was a video highlighting all the noteworthy aspects of each component of the harness.
