A Three Event Medieval Tournament
INTRODUCTION: Medieval Knights were trained from boyhood to develop the skills necessary to be warriors. They needed to know how to fight on horses with a lance, how to use a sword, and how to shoot a bow and arrow. Tournaments were held to allow Knights the chance to practice and show off their abilities in these three skills necessary to be a good Knight.
In this classroom tournament they will exhibit their skill in JOUSTING (fighting with a lance), SWORD FIGHTING (fighting with a sword) and ARCHERY (fighting with a bow and arrow).
