15th century jousting armour - Stechzeug

A German/Austrian Stechzeug, an armour created specifically for the Joust of Peace. By the late 15th century jousting had become a highly dangerous and specialised sport. Special armours were created in order to keep the jouster safe. This armour is usually on display in the Tournament Gallery at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. This video was created by History™ for the exhibition «Dressed to Kill», which was a joint exhibition between Historic Royal Palaces and the Royal Armouries, in the year of the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's accension to the English throne.
