    A world first, Furusiyya: the Art of Chivalry Between East and West explores the common roots of the subtly different martial cultures that developed around the figure of the mounted warrior in medieval Europe and the Arabic-speaking world. As much a history of fashion and manners, literature and romance as it is of weapons and warfare, Furusiyya: the Art of Chivalry Between East and West was described by London’s Daily Telegraph as one of the 50 must-see exhibitions of 2020. The exhibition will now run until October 18.
