Lecturer: Keith Dowen 

Not only worn for defence, armour was also a valuable medium with which to express the latest decorative styles and above all, the latest fashion in clothing. Just like clothing, armour was used to express the wealth, status and taste of the individual. This lecture by Keith Dowen aims to consider these themes and bring a different perspective to the study of armour.
