Medieval Warfare VII-3, Jun-Jul 2017

Medieval Warfare VII.3 with Tournaments and jousting in the Middle Ages.

Steven Mulhberger leads our issue that looks at the the rise of tournaments and jousts, from their beginnings as ‘bloodless battles’ to the events which were more theatre than sport. We will be covering tournaments from Byzantium to the Holy Roman Empire, and feature the famous Combat of the Thirty.
