Shield Bugs to Chain Mail – An introduction to armour

September 18 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Free

Armour is used every day, but it’s very different from ancient forms – OR IS IT?

We look at what inspired protective clothing and how it’s alive and kicking in the modern (and natural) world

Using historic armour from the times of the Border Conflicts, we will show how nature has inspired designs aimed at reducing damage from conflict and the ever-increasing arms race that followed.

We look at what worked, what didn’t and what remains in use in the modern age.

There should be something for everybody at the Cresswell Pele Tower, itself a building constructed to keep people out. There may be a chance to get dressed up, try things out and we may even be able to show you what technology did to circumvent the advances in weaponry.
