Lorica Clothing in the United States is organizing an online armour scholarship conference from 3 to 9 May using Zoom (warning! security and privacy catastrophe).

BEHOLD! The running list of our confirmed speakers for next week’s Steel Symposium, a series of lectures and forums centering on the history of and the art inspired by medieval and Renaissance armors. ⚔️ I am so thrilled by the roster of brilliant minds we’ll be learning from, and I hope I’ll see you there!
