The 'knight in shining armour' has become a staple figure in popular culture, and images of bloody battlefields, bustling feasting halls and courtly tournaments have been creatively interpreted many times in film and fiction. But what was the medieval knight truly like? In this fascinating title, former Senior Curator at the Royal Armouries Christopher Gravett describes how knights evolved over three centuries of English and European history, the wars they fought, their lives both in peacetime and on campaign, the weapons they fought with, the armour and clothing they wore and their fascinating code and mythology of chivalry. The text is richly illustrated with images ranging from manuscript illustrations to modern artwork reconstructions and many photographs of historic artefacts and sites.

Mounted on a powerful warhorse, protected by a shield bearing a heraldic coat of arms, and armed with formidable weaponry, the physical appearance of a medieval knight was an imposing sight. As a rigorously trained mounted warrior, and when joined by his peers in a might cavalry charge, a knight was able to plough his way through entire ranks of foot soldiers in a pitched battle. A knight's power and influence stretched far beyond the battlefield, however, with his noble birth, oaths of allegiance, and fearsome reputation, he played an integral role in the medieval feudal system. This book travels back in time to the intriguing middle ages, one of the most violent and turbulent periods in English history, to explore the world of a medieval knight. Delving into the origins of knighthood, the book reveals the long and arduous training and education that noble born sons under-went. It describes the acts of chivalry to achieve knighthood and the strength of character shown to protect the vulnerable, alongside the obligations and rewards expected and received. The world of the castle is also examined, unearthing the life of a knight at home, his duties to administer the King's law and maintain peace, and how he spent his leisure time pursuing the noble arts of courtly love-making, hawking, jousting, hunting and music. With an accessible text, beautiful fine art images, and an intelligent examination of how the role of the knight declined, this captivating book enlivens the world of the medieval chivalry, portraying in vivid detail the castles, battles, tournaments, honours and triumphs of these legendary heroes.

The relics of medieval knights' manors still shape the landscape of Poland today. The anonymous hills contain the remnants of wooden buildings, sometimes ones of stone or brick, as well as numerous tiny artifacts, the trace of the households of the past. Called "grodziska stozkowate" (motte), unlike the region's castles they are not so often visited, but more often destroyed. This book depicts the architecture and daily life of a medieval knight's manor based on the findings of archaeological excavations carried on for half a century, supplemented by written sources. It describes buildings, household items, and the tools used by the people of the past, allowing for a clearer understanding of the lives of medieval knights and their family.
