BEHOLD! The running list of our confirmed speakers for next week’s Steel Symposium, a series of lectures and forums centering on the history of and the art inspired by medieval and Renaissance armors. ⚔️ I am so thrilled by the roster of brilliant minds we’ll be learning from, and I hope I’ll see you there!
