Go on, ask me what it feels like to try on an original piece of arm armour from the siege of Malta era...

no actually, the joints moved perfectly, probably something to do with the vaguely oily type substance they coated them in for storage

You know we're expecting a complete report AND photographs of your trip. I hope someone took an image of you in original armor!

By the way, a few years ago my museum did an exhibit on swords and armor and borrowed heavily from the Oakshott Institute. They also reproduce weapons, some of the best I've seen, and I was like a kid in the candy store! I wore gloves.

I can't find the link for their reproductions at home, so it must be at work.

I hope to get my hands on pictures soon - a few people took pics of every item in the museum
I will post the pics and a description at the same time
