Fight director looks at weapons and armor in practical terms
16 December 2004 | by (Coventry, RI, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a series of shows dealing with weapons and armor as they relate to the history of Britain. Mike Loades presents the practical and technical issues related to the design and developments of various items. The episodes "The Sword", "The Bow", "The Lance", "The Shield", and "Armor" were presented on the History Channel on 12/16/04. No future dates have been indicated.

Mr Loades is a convincing presenter, and he tends to discuss issues that raise interesting points. Using historical records and moderns recreations, his presentations will interest both casual viewers and those more versed in these topics.
