Date & Time: Thursday 18th March 2021 at 7pm

Throughout the medieval period, the Near East suffered from a series of prolonged military conflicts involving an astonishing range of different factions. These ranged from nomadic clans to mercenary forces and from Mongol horsemen to crusader knights. Frequently commanders found themselves locked in conflict with foes whose warcraft was almost entirely unfamiliar, involving armies from very different cultural backgrounds. This paper explores the conflicts and battles of this era, examining how commanders from a range of different societies sought to adapt their forces and tactics so as to gain the upper hand over their rivals. We shall discuss the emergence of new weapons, changing approaches to siegecraft and the spread of technologies and ideas across the frontiers of war.
