Description

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.
