Dr. Rachel Parikh joins us to talk about her own personal journey and some insight into the world of arms and armor from the perspective of curatorship. Really fun chat that we think you’ll enjoy. We’ve talked about her before, but be sure to check out Rachel’s excellent Instagram feed @rachel.parikh for fantastic details and insights on some special pieces of arms and armor from collections around the globe.
With the help of special guest and Friend of the Show Grace Horne, we take a deep dive into the history of Sheffield, UK and Sheffield knives. Grace lays this history out for us in the context of eight objects in her collection. We will share the bibliography for this one and photos of the objects in our Facebook group.
