Take a look back through time to 7 November 1422, the day Henry V's funeral Achievements – the King's shield, saddle, sword and helm – were carried at his funeral in Westminster Abbey.

This all-day conference brings together experts in armour, conservation and architecture to talk about the sigificance of the achievements, and to give guests to opportunity to view The Achievements for themselves.

Highlights from the event include The Funerary Helm of King Henry V with Dr Toby Capwell, the Curator of Arms and Armour at The Wallace Collection; plus, Westminster Abbey Curator, Dr Susan Jenkins, speaking about Henry V's Funerary Achievements in the context of the abbey itself.
