This project collaborated with the Higgins Armory Museum to develop an understanding of armored combat during the 15th century. Weapons that were studied consisted of the pole-axe, spear, long sword, dagger, and hand combat techniques. The project also includes a general study of armor. The final product is an interactive electronic resource (DVD) including information on armor, weapons forms and video demonstrations of the techniques, and a website including highlights from the project.
