Episode Summary

EDIT
Greenwich, London
AIRED:
Joust Dig It. Five hundred years ago, Greenwich Palace in London was inherited by Henry VIII when he became king in 1509. With England having a secondary reputation among armourers in the 15th century, Henry set about building the most prestigious armour works in Europe and recruited some of the best armourers from across the continent in an attempt to rival the leading German and Italian manufacturers. Henry didn't only want to make outstanding armour. He also sought to impress both his own subjects and the rest of Europe by staging fantastic pageants at the palace, to which he invited the most powerful and influential people of the day. These pageants included jousts and tournaments, which took place in a specially constructed 'tiltyard' overlooked by two huge towers for the spectators.moreless
