The regular YouTube and social media series What Is This Weapon? hosted by Royal Armouries Keeper of Firearms and Artillery Jonathan Ferguson, continues to go from strength to strength, attracting audiences from around the world.
In each episode Jonathan examines the rarest and most obscure guns from history, contextualising their unique historical footnotes within the wider story of firearms, their development, and employment in conflict.
You can support the channel and our museum by purchasing from the exclusive range of What is This Weapon merchandise as well as books written by Jonathan.
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.
