Higgins Armory Museum, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA

The museum celebrates its return of the nationally travelled "Age of Armor" exhibition which had seen several dozen museums throughout the United States for the past several years.  It now returns finally to the Higgins museum, the only museum in the Northeast US solely dedicated to Arms and Armor, showcasing thousands of artifacts from the Bronze Age to the Gunpowder Age.

On Saturday, Oct. 18 the museum will hold a 'timeline' event, featuring area reenacting groups covering nearly 1,700 years of military evolution, coinciding with artifacts in the exhibition.

Featured groups/periods include:

Legio III Cyrenaica, 1st Century Romans

Company of the Wolfe Argent, 15th Cent. Burgundian soldiers

[Hurstwic] Viking/Norse warriors, ca. 10th Century

Higgins Armory Sword Guild, weapons combat demonstrations

The Salem Light Infantry, portraying the Salem Militia of 1629
(The SLI does not have a website, but photos are available on the Sword Guild site as well as here: )

Each group will have a formal presentation either in the museum's Auditorium or in the Great Hall throughout the day.

Timeline is free with Museum admission.
