At RtC Historic we have a huge range of historical equipment, arms, armour and clothing that we use for demonstrations and displays.  

 

As with all of our activities, our displays and demonstrations are designed with our pubic and visitors in mind so all of our resources are there to be tried on and worn by all ages.

Our armour is real and heavy, our weapons are real just blunted for safety and everything is there to put history into your hands.
