MK-S01 “Let The Joust Commence!”
This colorful ‘BONUS SET’ combines both knights (Sir William Carlisle of Allerdale and Sir John Ross of Galloway) together with the ‘Jousting Barrier’ that separates them at a very favorable price!
Throughout history warriors have always engaged in military games both to prepare for war itself and to perfect their skill-at-arms for pure enjoyment. From the 10th Century onwards tournaments were an integral part of a knight’s life and sometimes death. Tournaments and jousting in particular could be a deadly and dangerous pastime.
The image however of armoured and surcoated knights on their charging horses racing towards each other remains the epitome of the chivalric ideal.
