The effects of Tudor warfare on Southampton

One topic not covered in my work around the Book of Fines was looking further into the many references to guns and gunpowder in the original documents. Inspired by the research done by Randall Moffat into the medieval armaments in Southampton, this has now become a detailed area of study, looking at the muster books and also the impact of Henry VIII's French wars and Elizabeths Spanish ones.

I hope this will become a future Records Series volume.
