Armoring Richard III

At the March 2, 2013 Conference of the Richard III Society, Dr Toby Capwell discusses how the royal armorer might have coped with Richard's scoliosis. The 30-minute presentation, with slides, is available on YouTube.

The conference was held at Leicester University and attracted a record number of attendees. While no piece of Richard's armor survives, Capwell's lecture looks at a number of armor types which were used during his time.
