I have been teaching about knights, armor, history and martial arts most of my life. I am available to teach on a number of subjects on a classroom basis, or individually, on different levels depending on the audience.

The following are subjects that I am able to lecture or demonstrate on:

Knights and Chivalry– Most aspects including the knightly virtues, training to be a knight, duties of a knight and squire, daily life of a knight, heraldry. Clothing and armor of a 14th or 15th century knight can be worn and demonstrated with.

Armor– Can lecture on the development of armor from roman times to the renaissance, am also able to look at weapons of the periods and their interrelation to the armor. Basic military tactics and the use of arms and armor in relationship to status.
