Artists played an important role, not only in inspiring the complex and costly techniques employed in the decoration of armour, but also in its actual creation. This talk, from Armourer Simon Metcalf, will explore the links between the armour on display and other works of art in the exhibition.

10-Minute Talks are free with an exhibition ticket or 1-Year Pass.
