This project created a website with updated information and photographs of selected swords from the Higgins Armory Museum, along with a database of the museum's sword collection and background information on the swords and their context. The project also created an extensive background research document on the regions, history, and technology behind the swords in the Higgins collection. Finally, a searchable bibliography was created so that any subsequent groups will have an easier, more effective tool for finding relevant books.
