Lunch and Learn: Blades, Bows, and Bushido: A Slice of Samurai History presented by Jeremy Sather

 

The image of a samurai warrior is that of a masterful killer behind a calm exterior, willing to do anything for the lord he serves. In this talk, we will explore the origins of this image and the development of the samurai from rustic horseback archers to a complex social order characterized by the possession of two swords and a rigidly-defined code of behavior often referred to as bushidō.
