Despite the popularity of jousting during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, little is known about its practicalities. To glean more details about the evolution of the sport's techniques and armour, Fallows focuses on three manuals written by Iberian jousting champions of the 15th and 16th centuries. As well as providing editions of these important texts, alongside their first translations into English, he discusses many illustrations which clarify the authors' technical terminology, and analyses aspects such as the scoring system.
