Talk Description: Join Dr Tobias Capwell to delve into his eagerly-awaited new publication, Armour of the English Knight 1450-1500, which presents a comprehensive exploration of the armour worn during the War of the Roses, one of the most enigmatic periods in English history.

In his talk, Dr Capwell will enliven a period when English armour became much more elaborate and when different styles proliferated under increasing continental influence. Drawing from his book, he’ll reveal unknown or rarely published pieces of armour alongside a wealth of sculptural, pictorial and documentary sources, which he has assembled and interpreted to reconstruct the defensive equipment of this violent age of dynastic conflict.

Book Signing: Following the talk, Dr Capwell will sign copies of his new publication, Armour of the English Knight 1450-1500 (Thomas de Mar Ltd). Please note that the event ticket price is redeemable against the purchase of the publication made on the evening. Participants can enjoy a glass of prosecco during the signing.
