England’s American knight in armour….!



Here is a link to a video of Toby Capwell, the American curator of arms and armour at The Wallace Collection in London. It concerns his thoughts on seven medieval weapons scenes in movies and TV.

He was, of course, one of the two fully armed knights who escorted Richard on his final journey from Bosworth to Leicester Cathedral in 2015.

You can also find many more links concerning him and articles about medieval weapons, armour, knights and warfare in general at the Wallace Collection website and here

We’re fortunate indeed to have enticed this excellent and indispensible medieval expert from his home country!
