Nicolas Torniere and Soline Anthore Baptiste are PhD historians who specialise in body armour and historic costume

The Howard de Walden arms and armour at Dean Castle is typical of a gentleman and scholar’s lifetime collection. As a respected enthusiast for knighthood and chivalry, he commissioned a special suit of armour from an artist of the time, Felix Joubert, restorer of the Queen’s collections and Museums in London and who made the wonderful horse figure for Dean Castle. The armoured body from medieval times fascinated our ancestors in the beginning of the 20th century, for armour suits as well as costumes. In this talk we will analize their ideas, looking at historic collection pieces, as displayed and sometimes worn by their owners - inviting imagination!
