The Royal Armouries produces facsimiles, illustrated guides, research materials, gift books and guidebooks. Our aim is to tell the compelling story of arms and armour through the ages – technology, material culture, decorative art, history, ownership and more.
All publications are sold to support the work of the Royal Armouries. Your purchase directly supports the museum, helping to care for the national collection and keeping it free for future generations to enjoy.
With the appointment of Nicholas Merbury as master of the King's Ordnance in the early part of the 15th century, the Royal Armouries commenced its role as the standard setter for arms and armour in this country.
This pride and heritage extends to the Royal Armouries products, inspired by our collections and our special place in Britain's history.
