I Forge Iron

Armor resource from the Cleveland Museum of Art


Recommended Posts

I have 3 volumes of the Wallace Collection Catalog and a number of other Museum works.  One thing to be wary of with early catalogs is that a lot of armour was "repaired", often with other pieces that were modified to fit; sometimes not so well..., in the Victorian era.  Definitely a situation where modern conservatory and research is a must!  Of course on the metallurgical side of things Alan Williams has a 900+ page book on the metallurgy of armour all based on *modern* research:  "The Knight and the Blast Furnace" , I've read his much smaller companion book; "The Sword and the Crucible" cover to cover and am planning an attack on TK&TBF once my retirement goes "thud".
