Many thanks to Stuart at the Royal Armouries Leeds. He gave us a very interesting insight into the library and its work. As well as a wide ranging library they have some fantastic archive materials, some dating back to the thirteenth century.
The library provides a reading room service for people interested in the Armouries’ collections, from PhD researchers to people interested in family history, and holds an extensive picture library.
The Armouries themselves are a good day out. Whilst the focus is on the implements of war, the devastating impact of war is made clear.
Good luck to Stuart with his MA!
