Delighted to announce I’ll be giving an illustrated lecture at the Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick, on Robert Dudley’s armour on the 18th January 2018.
A short blurb;
Preserved in the Royal Armouries in Leeds is an outstanding personalised sixteenth-century armour made for Robert Dudley. Emblazoned with his family and heraldic emblems, notably including the ragged staffs, this armour is considered one of the finest English armours made in the Tudor age. This illustrated talk will focus on the history and significance of this important Elizabethan treasure, and include a short history of the royal armour workshops at Greenwich.
My lecture is part of a new series of ‘Smart-Talks’ held at the Lord Leycester Hospital each month. For more details and tickets click the link below;
