The Historical Museum of Berne has a new exhibition running until 24 August with a clear Burgundian theme. I wish I could go.
The exhibition web site is worth a visit for two reasons. Firstly, it has a clearly laid out and succinct chronology for Charles' life, times and death. Of course if you want more there's always the Wikipedia entry. Secondly, there's a small thumbnail at the bottom left of the page showing the horse armour of Emperor Frederick III , 1477 from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna which doesn't seem to be available on their main armour web site.
There's a range of related re-enactment events associated with the exhibition from 30 July to 10 August including a jousting tournament and an army camp which look very interesting indeed. Apparently the jousting is provided by "England’s best tournament riders"!
As I said before: I wish I could go!

The exhibition is being transferred to the Groeninge Museum, Bruges from 27th March till 21st July 2009. I might make this one. It’s only €9.00!
