In 2004, the Royal Armouries Yearbook was relaunched as Arms & Armour: a peer-reviewed academic journal. It aims to encourage and publish serious research in the field of arms and armour, from scholars – both professional and amateur – based around the world.
Its areas of study are multi-disciplinary in approach and content, and include, but are not limited to, the history, development, use, decoration and display of arms and armour throughout history.
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 also includes reviews of recently published books, and announcements and accounts of seminars, conferences and events.
