This project was created with the Higgins Armory Museum in an effort to catalogue artifacts of Middle Eastern Arms & Armor, and to place the artifacts in a historical, cultural and military context. Research papers outline the history, culture, weapons and arms from the lands of Turkey, North Africa, Persia, Arabia, as well as an overview of the advent of Islam. The artifacts have been photographed and catalogued, and all of this information is integrated into an interactive website.
