Medieval Mentalities on Weapons and Warfare
Join Bretton Rodriguez, Ph.D. and Edward Schoolman, Ph.D. as they explore the relationships between medieval cultures and their weapons. The development of new and better martial technology shaped the nature of warfare in the medieval and early modern worlds, and it transformed the practical, decorative, social, and metaphorical values of weapons of war.
