Focused on subjects inspired by the collections of the British Museum, this gift book presents a visual introduction to the topic of warfare. The selection of artefacts reflects the world-wide impulse to fight for causes and territorial dominion. There are representations of warriors and combatants such as an Egyptian pharoah in his war-chariot
scenes from a variety of legendary and historical battles, including the war of Troy
and crafted military equipment, like the Sutton Hoo helmet.
