History of Medieval Arms and Armor & Knighting

John Pettibone, former curator and executive director of Hammond Castle Museum, will host a lecture and demonstration of the History of Medieval Arms and Armor.  He has spent many years studying the ancient art of armor and examples from the castles collection will be on display including:  Japanese samurai pole arm (naginata), an armored sleeve and shoulder protection from a Japanese Samurai, and a two handed European sword.  John will talk about how one became a knight and the rules of knighthood.  He will then confer knighthood with a Dubbing Ceremony for girls and boys of all ages, in order to induct our very first members into the Order of the Junior Knights of Hammond Castle.  

At the conclusion of the program there will be a question and answer session, an opportunity to try on the Armor and a tour of Medieval aspects of the Museum.

Advanced ticket can be purchased for $20 per person $10 for children  6-12.
