Description

Generally regarded as a gentlemanly profession, after extensive research John Farman has discovered the terrible truth about the life of your average Knight.

To start with there's the uniform. A suit of armour not only cost the earth in medieval times but it probably weighed more than a small planet when you put it on.

Best not to mention the chain-mail underwear that was considered the height of fashion at the time.

There was danger involved in everything a Knight was asked to do.

Saving maidens was no mean feat (sometimes they didn't want to be saved!) and jousting might have made a nice day out for all those bored princesses and peasants but lances were pretty lethal, especially if you can't see where you're going in your visor. And I haven't even begun to tell you the real truth about dragons
