Source Code: Earl of Pembroke’s Armour Article Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_of_Pembroke%27s_Armour [[File:EarlofPembrokefront.JPG|thumbnail|Front view of armour on display]] The Earl of Pembroke’s Armour is one of the pieces in the [[Royal Ontario Museum]]’s European Collection. This suit of armour belonged to the [[Earl of Pembroke]], [[William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (10th Creation)|William Herbert]] (1501-1570). ==History== === William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke === William Herbert was a noble and courtier during the [[House of Tudor|Tudor Period]] and served as a guardian to King Edward VI following the death of King Henry VIII. After King Edward's death he served Queen Mary I. The Earl had 3 children surviving to adulthood who also served the House of Tudor. William Herbert died on March 17, 1570 and is buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral next to his first wife, [[Anne Herbert, Countess of Pembroke|Anne (Parr) Herbert]].<ref>{{cite web|title=''William Herbert, 1st earl of Pembroke''.

This piece is a rare example of armour made by master armourer [[Erasmus Kirkener]] at the [[Greenwich armour|Royal Armoury Workshops at Greenwich]], England in the 1550s.<ref name=Iconic>{{cite book|last=Derksen|first=Tessa|title=Iconic: The Must-See Treasure of the ROM|year=2010|publisher=Royal Ontario Museum|location=Toronto|isbn=978-0- 88854-473-5|pages=35}}</ref> The Greenwich workshops were founded by King Henry VIII in 1525 to provide tailoured armour for nobles of England. 4
  5. 5. This piece, originally from the ancestral estate of the Earls of Pembroke,<ref>{{cite book| last=O'Farrell|first= Brian|title=Shakespeare's Patron: William Herbert, Third Earl of Pembroke, 1580 - 1630: Politics, Patronage and Power|year=2011|publisher=Continuum| isbn=1441106111|pages=2}}</ref> was kept in the Armoury of [[Wilton House]] near Sailsbury in Wiltshire, England. After the First World War, as with many large country houses, the contents of Wilton House were sold. The selling of estates and their contents have an interesting history of their own tied in with the social and financial changes brought on by the war. [[Charles Trick Currelly|Charles Currelly]] acquired this piece for the Royal Ontario Museum in 1930.<ref name=Armour>{{cite web|last=Keeble|first=Cory| title=Iconic: Earl of Pembroke's Armour|url=http://www.rom.on.ca/en/collections- research/rom-channel/iconic-earl-pembrokes-armour|publisher=Royal Ontario Museum| accessdate=3 June 2013}}</ref> It is on display in the Weston Family Gallery of the Samuel European Galleries. ==Armour Description== The armour is composed of overlapping horizontal lames of steel that are held together by internal leather straps and sliding rivets. This Italian influenced design of armour found on the breastplate and backplate is known as ''anime.'' Kirkener designed ''animes'' between 1550 and 1560. The ROM's ''anime'' is one of only three surviving ''animes'' made at Greenwich in public collections. ''Animes'' formed the core parts of armour garnitures.<ref name="Iconic"/> [[File:Earlofpembrokeright.JPG|thumbnail|left|side view of armour on display]] Garniture armour is a collection of interchangeable pieces which could be rearranged for various combat situations. Most suits of garniture armour would include a full plate harness, a helmet with removable visor, a grandguard (neck support), a passguard (extra arm support), a manifer (hand guard), and a set of saddle steels. Sometimes a shaffron (to protect the head of the horse) was created as part of the set. Pembroke's armour forms what is known as a ''small garniture'' that would be used for infantry and light or heavy cavalry use.<ref name="Iconic"/> In addition to serving as protection for the wearer, armour is reflective fashion styles during the 1550s. The shape of the shoulders and sides of this piece reflect the cut of the [[Doublet (clothing)|doublet]] worn by civilians during the reign of Mary I. The custom made piece also reflects the physical dimensions of the Earl of Pembroke.<ref name="Iconic"/> ==See also== [[Royal Ontario Museum Iconic Objects]] [[Royal Ontario Museum]] ==Coordinates== {{coord|43.6679298|-79.3944128}} ==References== {{Reflist|1}} {{Reflist|2}} {{Reflist|3}} [[Category:Royal Ontario Museum]] 5

An only child, he attended the local school in Exeter and was known to visit the shops of the blacksmith, tanner, and wheelwright in order to study how different materials were used.<ref name=Matthews>{{cite journal|last=Matthews|first=Julia| title=The Right Man in the Right Place at the Right Time: A Look at the Visonary who was Instrumental in Founding the ROM|journal=Rotunda|year=2006|month=Spring| volume=38|issue=3|accessdate=7 June 2013}}</ref> He was tutored by Reverend Jasper Wilson in Latin, who also taught him how to shoot.<ref name="Matthews" /> Currelly's high school years at the [[Harbord Collegiate Institute]] brought his family to Toronto. During this time, Currelly participated in art lessons and nature studies. After graduating in 1894, he attended the University of Toronto's [[Victoria University, Toronto|Victoria College]] like his father and grandfather. At Victoria College, he took biology and earth science courses in addition to asian history and the Romance Languages. He received his B.A. in 1898.<ref name="Matthews" /> After leaving university, Currelly spent the next two years serving as a lay missionary for the [[Methodist Church]] at the [[Umatilla Indian Reservation]] in Northern [[Manitoba]].<ref name="torontostar" /> During this time, he collected information on First Nations life in early Canada that was exhibited upon his return to Victoria College for postgraduate studies.<ref name="Matthews" /> Currelly was awarded his Master's degree from Victoria College in 1902.<ref name="torontostar" /> == Archeology== After completing his Master's degree, Currelly and his friend Ned Burwash, the son of [[Nathaniel Burwash]], Chancellor of Victoria University went to England planning to study how social gospel had filtered down to the working classes. However, this plan was disrupted when Currelly stopped at the [[British Museum]] to have some coins identified.<ref name="Matthews" /> After a little [[shawabti]] figure fell out of his pocket, 6

Petri interviewed Currelly about his drawing skills and offered him an assistantship. Soon, Curelly was living in Petrie's home learning how to pack artifacts.<ref name="Matthews" /><ref name=Harbordite>{{cite journal|title=Some Distinguished Harbordites|journal=Harbordite:|year=1992|month=Spring|issue=30| accessdate=7 June 2013}}</ref> Eventually, Currelly was responsible for a dig in Egypt where he discovered the [[cenotaph]] and tomb of [[Ahmose I]].<ref name=Lovat>{{cite book|last=Dickson|first=Lovat|title=The Museum Makers: The Story of the Royal Ontario Museum|year=1986|publisher=Royal Ontario Museum|location=Ontario|isbn=0-88854- 326-3}}</ref> Curelly continued to work in Ehnasya, [[Lower Egypt]], and in [[Sinai]] under Petrie until 1905, when Petrie left the Egypt Exploration Fund.<ref name="Lovat" /> In 1907, Currelly also left the Fund. While in Egypt, Currelly discovered his talent and love of collecting and began to collect for people in Britain and Canada including [[Edmund Walker]], the father of one his school friends. After meeting with Walker in 1905, Currelly was appointed official collector for the University of Toronto and later was given the title of Curator of Oriental Archaeology.<ref name="Lovat" /> Currelly delved into his work, becoming more and more convinced that a good museum must be developed in Toronto <ref name="Harbordite" /><ref name=CurrellyROM>{{cite web|title=Charles T. Currelly| url=http://www.rom.on.ca/en/about-us/our-history/founders/charles-t-currelly| publisher=Royal Ontario Museum|accessdate=7 June 2013}}</ref> ==Royal Ontario Museum== In 1906, when Edmund Walker was chairing a commission on the future of the University of Toronto, it was recommended that a museum should be constructed to to serve students and the public. Soon planning for the founding of a provincial museum started under Walker's watchful eye. In 1907, Currelly was made curator of the Royal Ontario Museum of Archaeology. During 1911, Currelly started to work in the basement of the first museum building which was still under construction. Finally, in 1914, Currelly became director of the Archaeology Museum.<ref name="Matthews" /><ref name="Harbordite" /> Throughout his life, Currelly continuously worked to advance the Museum's interests, and never stopped looking for acquisitions to compliment the Museum's collections leading them to grow enormously through the late 1910s and 1920's. When Currelly finally retired in 1946, the Museum renamed the old Armour Court the Currelly Gallery.<ref name="CurrellyROM" /> [[File:Currelly Gallery.JPG|thumb|center|Currelly Gallery]] ==Later Life and Death== [[File:CurrellyBust.JPG|thumb|100px|text-top|Currelly Bust]] Before Currelly died, he wrote an autobiography entitled, ''I Brought the Ages Home.'' This book recounts his adventures, travels, and museum work. During his retirement Currelly lived near [[Port Hope, Ontario]]. While in [[Florida]] for a winter vacation, Curelly fell ill and was taken the [[Johns Hopkins Hospital]] in [[Baltimore]].<ref name=torontostar>{{cite news|title=Dr. Charles T.
