About the magazine

Warfare in the age of kings and castles

Medieval Warfare picks up where its sister magazine, Ancient Warfare, leaves off. Starting around 500 AD, Medieval Warfare examines the world during the Middle Ages up through the early years of the Renaissance (the magazine generally leaves off in the 16th century). While popular topics such as the Crusades and the Vikings are given regular coverage, Medieval Warfare also tackles more complex and obscure topics, ranging from the Umayyad Caliphate versus the Byzantine Empire to horse trading in 14th-century England.

Writing

Articles in Medieval Warfare are written by leading historians in the field, as well as younger researchers exploring overlooked topics. Each issue includes a theme that provides detailed coverage of a particular subject, from reader favourites like the Battle of Agincourt and the Wars of the Roses to more unusual focuses like the Battle of Vlaardingen. Outside the theme, off-topic articles include analysis of battles, pieces on logistics and strategy, and examinations of the warrior culture that was so prevalent in the medieval world. Finally, our regular columnists round out each issue with sections on warriors, weaponry and even the portrayal of the Middle Ages in popular culture. In short, Medieval Warfare is bursting with content for every lover of medieval military history!

Artwork

Besides its articles, Medieval Warfare brings history to life through original maps, drawings and paintings. We specially commission our artists to create accurate illustrations of medieval warriors and warfare. These works are supplemented by photographs showing contemporary art and artifacts. Many of these items are seldom published in conventional histories, and always include the unique context that only Medieval Warfare can provide.
