Dealing in Death and Destruction: Leonardo’s Weapons | 2018

Elaborate and ingenious war machines and formidable weapons frequently appear in the sketchbooks of Italian Renaissance polymath Leonardo Da Vinci.  What was his inspiration?  Why were they needed?  What were they based on?  Could they actually have worked?

Join Curator of European Arms and Armour, Ralph Moffat, to tackle these questions, and explore the wonderful and terrifying world of Da Vinci’s military mind.

Drop in – no need to book.
