Arms and Armour: Journal of the Royal Armouries

In 2004 Arms & Armour re-launched what was formerly the Royal Armouries Yearbook as a peer-reviewed academic journal, which aims to encourage and publish serious research in the field from scholars, both professional and amateur, around the world.

Its areas of study, which are multi-disciplinary in approach and content, include, but are not limited to, the history, development, use, decoration and display of arms and armour throughout history.

As a field of study, arms and armour engages with many traditional areas of academic study, including: ancient, medieval, military and modern history; the history of science; the history of technology; the fine and visual arts; design; ballistics; forensic science; war and conflict studies and museology.

Arms & Armour is edited under the auspices of the Royal Armouries, the UK’s national museum of arms and armour, alongside an international Editorial Board comprising many of the leading experts in the field.

Arms & Armour is published twice a year in spring and autumn and, in addition to the articles, the journal also includes reviews of recently published books, and announcements and accounts of seminars, conferences and events.

All our titles are available from the Royal Armouries Shop.
