Medieval Knights, Medieval Tournaments
Throughout Europe during the summer months, there are many historic sites, usually medieval castles, which stage medieval pageants with men dressed as medieval knights taking part in jousting tournaments.
We were lucky enough to visit Tiffauges castle in SW France, the home of the infamous Gilles de Rais, where today amongst the castle ruins they stage regular medieval themed events.
Here is a picture of a medieval knight on his horse with lance in hand (taken at the medieval event at Tiffauges).
More was to come .... replicas of medieval weapons and siege engines were demonstrated including a trebuchet. More on that to come!
