25 Feb-2 June 2009. The exhibition retraces the social, political and economic life of the complex world of the Samurai during the Edo period in Japan from 1615-1867. On display are about 90 pieces that illustrate the complex world of the warrior caste of the Samurai, including well-preserved suits of armour, helmets, swords and other accessories, made between 1575 and 1867. The exhibition analyses the history of Samurai armour, its construction and decoration, and the main schools for armourers.
