The Gunpowder Revolution

Monday's lecture will be on the "Gunpowder Revolution," which will take us from the walls of Constantinople to the arms factories and banking houses of Bruxelles by way of the muddy fields of Agincourt.

And speaking of Agincourt, we'll take a detour into the making of national military mythologies.

With that in mind, reconsider Agincourt in the context of this recent article from the New York Times.
