Chris Dobson’s books on armour and edged weapons are popular with museum professionals, living history enthusiasts and general readers. They have been praised not only for publishing important original research, but also for their clarity: as an acknowledged expert in his field, Chris writes for everyone, not just other experts. When writing, he combines his practical experience of making and restoring pieces with his great experience of handling originals and his scholarly approach to the subjects he covers. Chris’s research and publications are entirely self-funded, and by purchasing these ebooks you are supporting the publication of future titles.
