In Focus… Arms and Armour
20 Feb 2012 - 15 Feb 2013
'In Focus...' exhibitions are small temporary displays exploring elements of the museum and gallery collections in detail.
The Smith bequest of arms and armour is one of the finest collections in a regional museum. This small display of objects from the collection features a complete suit of 16th Century German armour, a pair of enormous 'schlactershwerter' two-handed battle swords and examples of helmets, breastplates and gauntlets from the Medieval period to the 19th Century.
