This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: Weapons of War. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The quest for wealth and power in the Middle Ages was driven by the violent culture of the European countries. The period was extremely violent and lands were subject to invasion. Castles were built to act as military forts and the power bases to wage war when needed. This violence created the need for a variety of weapons to suit the fighting men of the era.
The fighting in Europe had a brief respite when the attentions of the Medieval warlords turned their attention to the Holy Land. Weapons were created to support the Knights Templar, Teutonic Knights and the Hospitallers to fight in the crusades.
The presentation covers the following:
Violent Middle Ages
Weapons for the Crusades
Types of Armed Men
Weapons of the Lower Class
Weapons and the Feudal System
Call to Arms
Siege Weapons (3)
