ARMS AND ARMOUR OF THE MEDIEVAL JOUST
Autore: Tobias Capwell
Collana di illustratissime guide alle svariate collezioni custodite presso la Royal Armouries di Londra.
Jousting is the most iconic form of mounted combat. For more than five hundred years, the sport itself, and the chivalric culture that surrounded it, took on almost mythical qualities. Here, Tobias Capwell explains the glitz and glamour of a sport that attracted enormous popular audiences throughout the late middle ages. Though he deals almost exclusively with weapons and warriors, Capwell tells a story not of war and destruction, but of pageantry and valour. This is the story of the armour of peace.
