Heraldry is a living survival of the great medieval world of European chivalry. First introduced as a means of identification in battle and in tournaments today the heraldic tradition survives and can be seen in flags, emblems, road signs, sports badges and corporate logos. This work unravels the complex language and grammar of this social code that has been an inspiration for artists as well as an invaluable tool for historians, archaeologists and those interested in tracing their family tree.
