With no standing army from which to obtain equipment and the nation having long been at peace, the start of the war saw both King and Parliament vying for control of the nation's arms stores. The scale of the conflict even forced them to look abroad for war materials. Keith Dowen, Assistant Curator of Armour at the Royal Armouries, will examine the types of armour and weaponry used during the Civil Wars, as well as their origin and efficiency.
