Syston Library Activities

History Talk with Nick Marshall. Title for his talk is Arms and Armour in the 12th & 13th Century. It will take place at Syston Library on Thursday 16th April between 7.30 to 8.30pm.

In the Middle Ages, every man from the lowliest peasant to the Lord of the Manor, had to go to war. Fighting was even a spectator sport in grand Tournaments. This talk looks at the military hardware and some of the techniques they developed to win. Find out what they used to deal deadly damage to each other! Handle or even try on armour and wonder how well it would stop swords, spears & arrows!

Tickets £3. Pre-booking essential. Tel: 0115 305 3500
