WEAPONS CURIOSA

Japanese manuscript illustration showing two samurai

10:30am Saturday 17th April 2010 - 4:00pm Saturday 17th April 2010 at Leeds

We tend to think of the development of weapons as being a steady progress toward the modern day, but there were many tangents, wrong turns and outright dead ends along the way.

For every landmark like the Luger pistol, there is a curiosity like the revolver bayonet. Come and find out about some of the most famous examples of the weapon smith’s art as well as some of the more unusual ones!
