Join us for the next Quivira Chapter program! Robert Yarmer will present a program about iron weapons and tools from the Spanish Conquest period (1520) and the early Colonial period (1600) in the Americas. The weapons will include lance points, swords and other weapons of that time, both made in Spain and North America. Also included will be trade items and personal items the Spanish would have had with them in their travels in North America. Robert will share a portion of his collection.
Robert Yarmer is a lifetime resident of Ellinwood, Kansas and an avid collector of Kansas history, including maps, guide books to the territory and early military artifacts. He is a board member of the Quivira Chapter.
