AVAS members enjoy lecture

At the AVAS lecture for October, AVAS members were treated to a fascinating talk from Dave Fawcett, and expert in historic arms and armour.  In the first part of the talk, Dave talked about the intricate jostling for power among members of the French and English royal families, and how this translated into a series of battles in the Hundred Years War, culminating in the famous Battle of Agincourt.  The second part of the talk concentrated on the arms and armour, and Dave had kindly brought along a number of replica examples which we we able to try out for real.  I have added a number of photos below, and should add that no AVAS members were harmed during playtime with the weapons.  More photos are available on the AVAS Flickr photostream.
