Lecture - Armor, Weaponry and Chivalry - the World of Knights by Dirk Van Tuerenhout

  

The mention "Middle Ages" conjures up thoughts of castles, knights, kings and queens, and poor serfs toiling in the fields. To celebrate the opening of the new Knights exhibition Dr. Dirk Van Tuerenhout, curator of anthropology, will overview of these Dark Ages--the role of the Church, the rise of Islam, the Crusades, art, architecture, as well as economics and social structure. You will learn about the process of becoming a knight, and how armor evolved over the centuries. Last but not least, you will hear about castles and how they too, changed over time from humble dirt and timber forts to massive stone structures with all kinds of clever engineering ruses to keep their occupants safe.
