Learn about the arms, armor, and fighting techniques of the Persians in the army of Tamerlane in this engaging, interactive demonstration. The latter end of the 14th century saw the conquest of most of Central Asia and the Middle East by Tamerlane. Tamerlane’s army was a multi-ethnic force that effectively made use of the resources and skills of the conquered people brought into his service.

Bayt al-Asad is a group dedicated to the research, practice, and education on the fighting arts of the 7th –15th-century Islamicate world through the practice of historical martial arts, experimental archeology, and academic research.
