More About Arms and Armor: Evolution and Innovation

‘Arms and Armor’ brings together historical weaponry and natural history specimens to highlight parallels between combat in the human and natural worlds.

The diabolical ironclad beetle can withstand a force 39 thousand times its own body weight. In what ways does this tiny beetle inspire modern engineers? That question is one of many explored in the exhibition Arms and Armor: Evolution and Innovation.

Throughout the ages, weapons and armor have evolved in response to the pressures of ecological competition and human warfare. “Arms and Armor” explores parallels in the ways natural selection and human innovation influence the shape, composition, and function of structures ranging from turtle shells to chain mail.
