Today, I'm guest blogger over at Classically Educated: A Place for Global Citizens and Polymaths. In my entry, I talk about one of the subjects near and dear to my heart: historic arms and armour. Specifically, I talk about "Some Arms and Armour Terms and Facts". I cover a few of my pet peeves when it comes to historic arms and armour, including the less-than-accurate use of the terms "plate mail" and "scale mail" and erroneous beliefs regarding the weight of medieval plate armour and swords.

I'm pleased with the entry, even if my tone is a little snarky at times. I think it works. Heck, I got to use the phrase "what rot!" and the word "pleonastic".

Check it out:
