It's time to take a field trip Athens, GA. This particular trip is going to take us all the way back to the Age of the Samurai. From 1185 to 1868, Samurais ruled supreme over Japan and there was nothing in their way of spreading their leadership worldwide.

Recently, the Georgia Museum of Art has received their newest exhibit, "Samurai: The Way of the Warrior." This particular exhibit contains pieces from the world renowned Stibbert Museum in Florence, Italy. The exhibit features about 100 various pieces from the Samurai era including authentic full body armor, swords, saddles, and other objects that Samurais used in their everyday life.
