Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The history of warfare is brought to life in this series from the History Channel. Experts from the Royal Armories in London share their knowledge on the construction and use of the weapons that were used in battle from ancient times in Rome, Greece, and Northern Europe, through the development of modern warfare. This episode traces the history of the art of self defense, from simple and complex weaponry to the martial arts. Museum artifacts, demonstrations, and reenactments are used to illustrate the story of self-defense.
