THE tournament of tho sixteenth century, with which this talk deals, was a highly-organized and formal trial of skill, bearing about as much resemblance to the sanguinary, promiscuous fights to the death of the Middle Ages us a modern inter-Varsity boxing match does to an old-fashioned 'battle-royal.' The tournaments in which Henry VIII competed are notable chiefly for their rigid rules and the amazingly elaborate armour worn, and Mr. Ffoulkes, who is Curator of the Tower Armouries, and the author of many works on armour, has much of interest to say on these points.
