Battle of Hastings
The Norman’s victory at the 1066 Battle of Hastings was largely due to their horses having saddles and stirrups, which gave mounted soldiers more stability.

“Armor of Yesterday and Today”
Recommended for 3rd – 12th grades
How have people protected themselves over the centuries? Students use observational skills and historic inquiry as they investigate different types of armor and discover first-hand how armor has changed over time. Students put their scientific minds to work as they examine where armor is evident in nature and discover armor and weaponry of the middle ages, tournaments and heraldry. The program concludes with a live performance such as “Arming the Knight” or “Hand and Half Sword Combat.”
