An excellent choice. Also, the Met. is playing host to a huge
number of Byzantine artifacts; Paul Halsall, a noted mediaevalist
at Rhodes, has said that it's probably the largest number of
icons and relics and other such thing since the Fourth Crusade.

Might I recommend the excellent arms and armor collection at the
Art Institute in Chicago? It's got some great polearms, a
mailshirt, a brigantine, and several complete plate harnesses for
field and tourney. I haven't even begun on the swords...
