    Suits of armour through the ages in the New York Museum.

  • Description

    Titles read: "When KNIGHTS WERE BOLD!"

    New York, United States of America.

    In the Hall of Knights in the New York Museum we see numerous suits of armour standing or sitting on horses. C/Us of details of suits from different eras. C/Us of a parade shield belonging to Henry II of France and an embossed helmet for Francis I.

    A man in a suit of armour made in France in 1527 wields a sword to show how easy it is to move about in this suit. We then see two men in armour sword fighting in the dimly lit museum.
