Partners and collaborators

The Ho Group, Medieval Centre in Denmark

Description

The idea of this partnership is to investigate the composition and properties of medieval gunpowder and all the associated material culture. The group works in various forms, including seminars and experiments held at the Middelaltercentret in Nykøbing, Denmark, or Leeds, UK, bringing together academics, technicians, and pyro-technicians in a unique way combining documentary research, artefact studies and experimental archaeology.
