This package allows students to witness at first hand, the huge range of technology available to a late medieval army. Students are able to wear and safely handle a vast array of reproduction arms and armour from the 14th and 15th Centuries, ranging from full suits of armour to longbows, crossbows, swords and maces.
A range of interactive exercises demonstrate fo example:
- The battle tactics that allowed small English armies of peasants to defeat huge armies of French nobility.
- How the social 'class' structure of the Feudal System allowed English Kings to raise armies - and what happened to this system when the Black Death arrived.
Our very deep and eclectic knowledge of the period allows use to bring to life the significant events and players of Medieval England.
