Weapons, armor and protection changing the history of mankind. We will look at the revolutionary ways in which armies and civilisations have chosen to defend themselves and how these directly correspond to the development of certain weapons in various historical periods. From the Stone Age, through the High Middle Ages and up until the First World War, The Art of Defence will take an an original and historically accurate look at our military history and by doing so bring the past to life. To do this we will demonstrate the practical use of these weapons, with faithful, historically accurate replicas built specifically for this series. Taking inspiration from the historical and archeological record as we will build and display not only offensive weapons but more interestingly and key to the series; the tools of defence; armor, shields and clothing that were developed as a response
