Royal Armouries Museum Leeds

I visited the Armouries Museum in Leeds on the 1st Feb 2011. The decorative jousting armour was particularly interesting as the heavy metals were feminised by the use of delicate detail. The grandeur of the armour became increasingly popular around the time of Henry VIII. I also like the cutwork used in the armour and the construction techniques used in order to give the armour motion.
