Presented by Professor Mark P. Donnelly. In 1884 Sir Richard Francis Burton wrote that, “... the history of the sword is the history of mankind.” This lecture/presentation examines the various types and evolution (read as process of change and not necessarily implying improvement) of swords through history. Why they are designed they way they are and the techniques which were taught for their use. Why and how they change and what other social and cultural factors they affected.
