The Japanese warrior that provided the administrative and fighting aristocracy from the 11th to the 19th centuries. Samurai employed a range of weapons such as bows and arrows, spears and guns; but their most famous weapon and their symbol was the sword. Samurai were supposed to lead their lives according to the ethic code of bushido (“the way of the warrior”).
