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.
