THE MUSEUM OF HISTORY, The Altemberger House

SECTION: ARMS AND ARMOURS

.


The exhibition at the ground floor of the Altemberger House presents weaponry and military equipment of an impressive variety.
The first part of the presentation comprises items of military equipment as well as medieval saddling and mounting equipment, in a close connection with the weaponry development.
The tour goes on by presenting medieval items of armament from the famous medieval swards, daggers, halberds and lances, to the maces and flails.
The category of blades, used since prehistory and at the peak of their use in the medieval times, is to be noticed as part of the large variety of items in the present collection, adjoining small and large pieces.
The Oriental weapons represent another important part in the Museumís collection.
The manner of their representation is meant to envisage the extant connection between their provenience and the Central Europe milieu.
The present exhibition concludes with a presentation of firearms emergence, in a two-category structure: firearms using slow matches or flint frizzes, respectively.
