This volume brings together papers written by curators, conservators, and scientists who have worked very closely with European and Oriental arms and armour from some of the world's finest collections. These pieces, which have been examined in detail, include not only those made for royalty, such as the helmet of the Black Prince, the armours of King Henry VIII and the jewel-encrusted dagger of Shah Jahan, but also the apparently more mundane and those created to deceive. Through caareful study and hands-on experience, each of the authors provides an eye-opening insight into the history, science and interpretation of these important objects.
