Wallace Collection exhibition 2015
This show suggests that in fact, the Battle of Agincourt was fought brutally hand-to-hand between knights on both sides, the English archers only joining towards the end of the battle with hand-held weapons and not their bows.
The curation proves this theory through concrete evidence, and you'll find thrilling original weapons and Wallace Collection armour, as well as other medieval pieces from the archives all on display.
This show’s willingness to confront outdated narratives is a reminder that we should never be complacent about questioning the past. Great for big kids and eager little ones fascinated by historical battles and heroes - the delightful context of the unparalleled Wallace Collection is an added bonus!
