Hidden in a dusty library, locked in a secure vault this obscure and strange manuscript has the power to unlock lost secrets from a medieval world. Contained within the beautifully illustrated 150 paper folios is unique imagery of bloody but highly sophisticated combat, weird futuristic designs and inventions, ingenious engineering and judicial duels. Hans Talhoffer’s 1459 Fightbook is one of medieval worlds’ most mysterious manuscripts, challenging the legends and myths that surrounded this so often misunderstood period of our history.
