Coming up in Medieval Warfare VI.2...

I have an article publishing in the next issue of Medieval Warfare (out on 11 April 2016); a great magazine and one which I'm always pleased to contribute to…

Theme: Daniel Mersey, "Dueling knights, circa 1282 - Pageantry in plaster"


Although some areas of this fresco are no longer present, we are fortunate that the majority of the knights’ bodies – and therefore their armour – are preserved. Assuming that the artist has chosen to represent the two combatants in reasonably accurate fashion, what does this piece of art contribute to or confirm about our understanding of battle in the late thirteenth century?
