Welcome to our database!
In order to make the data used in our book, website and virtual exhibition more accessible to both scholars and the general public, we have created an online database in Nodegoat, a programme developed by LAB1100. The database contains details of all pas d’armes held between c.1420 and c.1520 (i.e. exact dates and locations, names of entrepreneurs and challengers, composition of teams, type of combat, theatrical scenario, ephemeral architecture, guests and spectators, etc.). The database can be searched by Events, i.e. all such tournaments that we have classified as pas d’armes; People, i.e. all persons involved in the pas d’armes as combatants,  judges, spectators, guests, etc.; and Locations, i.e. all towns, villages, castles and other places where these events took place.
For more detailed information on the way in which the data for this database was compiled and how to use the database itself, click here.
