Ground War

Ground War

Trace the development of soldiers' weaponry through the crucible of key technology breakthroughs from the Greeks to modern times. Explore how weapons and armour have evolved from bronze weaponry to the assault rifle. With the expertise of weapons experts from each historical period and a series of innovative and lively experiments, examine the critical tactical and technological breakthroughs that have influenced warfare. Experiments like: burying an AK47 in mud and water... then firing it; exploring the weaknesses of the Greek phalanx with an English rugby scrum; reconstructing how the modern soldier sees and fights using nightvision equipment; and many more.
