Do you have an interest in coats of arms, or heraldry? These are the experts! The College of Arms serves as the registrars and historians of all registered coats of arms in England an Wales. Experts were on hand all day long to answer questions and give introductions.

Peter O'Donoghue, the Bluemantle Pursuivant at the College of Arms, is shown standing and conversing with a show attendee. I later had a chance to talk with him at some length and the conversation was recorded by Roots Television. I expect that conversation to become available at within a few days. Peter described the work of the College of Arms and also explined the role of the "Bluemantle Pursuivant." He also addressed the myth of "family coats of arms."
