Some time back now, I went to a joust at Pendennis Castle organised by English Heritage. I was impressed as a lot of work had gone into making it authentic, from the lances with tips designed to bite into the cloth and make the lances break on a hit, to the armour to protect the jousters! Were they taking it easy on each other? Not a bit of it as you can see form the shot below, broken lances flying after a good hit!
