Arundel Castle, the magnificent home of the Earl Marshal, the Duke of Norfolk, opens to visitors on 29th March, and full details of opening times can be found here. The Earl Marshal has a supervisory role over the College of Arms, and Arundel's collections and decorative effects include much that is of armorial interest. On display at present is the College of Arms exhibition Crowns and Crests: Heraldry in the Round. This comprises a large collection of carved wooden Crests of twentieth-century Knights of the Garter.

Sword detail1 A4Sword and Dagger: The College of Arms holds three artefacts that have a traditional association with the battle of Flodden, where English and Scottish forces famously met in September 1513. These consist of a sword (pictured left), a matching dagger, and a ring.
