Drawing inspiration from 14th- and 15th-century sources, and especially from the likes of King Rene, Ramon Lull and Geoffrey de Chamy, Brian Price presents his own philosophy of the tournament as recreated through the Company of Saint George to which he belongs. The book is written for members of medieval societies and for those who re-enact the medieval tournament and contains all manner of information from the appearance, weapons and armour of the combatant to his virtues, skills and motives for fighting. Presented in medieval style prose, the book describes the code of chivalry to which they adhere, the rule governing the tournament, the location and organisation of the fighting and the swordsmanship of those taking part. This second edition contains new information.
