FREE TALK: Join Angus Patterson as he explores the Almain Armourer's Album, one of the Victoria and Albert Museum's great Elizabethan treasures.

It was compiled between 1557 and 1587 and records, in vivid detail, notable commissions at the English Royal Armoury in Greenwich during those years. The Queen's favourites, Sir Robert Dudley, Sir Christopher Hatton and Sir Henry Lee all have designs in the album. This talk offers a rare opportunity to see some of these designs alongside surviving armours built from them.
