The Knighthood, Chivalry & Tournaments Arms and Armour Glossary
Depicted occasionally in manuscript references, most of the 14th century examples seem to have taken place during a siege. The gateway to a castle is opened, after a wooden barricade, resembling a conventional wooden fence, has been set up around the opening. This serves to keep the castle from being overrun during the "à plaisance" engagement. In the surviving illustration, knights compete with spears only, on foot. Some of them are wounded, but there are no serious injuries. During the 15th century combats over the barriers became a part of the pas d'armes , gaining in popularity as the century progressed. They remained in fashion even during the 16th century, when elaborate garnitures were constructed.
