Here it is:

A great 50-minute documentary about an illustrated manuscript by Hans Talhoffer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Talhoffer, a 15th century combat arts instructor. The manuscript describes combat moves devised for "trial by combat" rituals, and also medieval war machines. Some of the cryptic drawings in the old folio are reconstructed as actual working models. There is also an appearance by a celebrity scholar that you probably won't be expecting to see.

That is an extremely interesting documentary...

I must share this one with my husband.  We spent Saturday at the PNE (big local fair) and watched the all three shows of the contact jousting.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?
