Deadly Weapons in The British Museum
Thu 27 October 2016, 11:00 – 12:00 BST
Fighting is not clever - but people always seem to have done it. This one hour tour of the British Museum focuses on arms and armour in the collection from the stone age onwards. It will look at the various things people have used to bash people on the head with from different cultures around the world. You'll see a spear made from a narwhal's tusk tipped with a meteorite, clubs with faces, helmets with moustaches and armour made out of a crocodile. The tour is suitable for ages 8 and over.
This tour is run by Footprints of London and not by the British Museum
