The 'Grand Medieval Joust' at Eltham Palace has been splendid this weekend. We visited on Saturday 15 June and, in addition to the central event of the actual joust, were able to enjoy some of the stalls of medieval artifacts and life from that period generally.
Luttrell Psalter (''...a celebrated manuscript, commissioned by a wealthy landowner in the first
half of the 14th century, is one of the most striking to survive from
the Middle Ages. Painted in rich colours embellished with gold and
silver, with vitality and sometimes bizarre inventiveness of
decoration, this manuscript is unlike virtually any other...' British Library).
Our English Heritage membership was well worthwhile again - our family of four gaining entry for £5.50 instead of the £31 for non-members. We look forward to the next event.
Some excellent photos here of the day:
