Categorized in the Tower of London Museum as "I.33" the Tower Fechtbuch is comprised of 32 pages consisting of over a hundred ink and watercolour drawings, accompanied with Latin text describing the technique of sword & buckler combat. The original author of the manuscript is unknown and the date of the manuscript is still in question although it is believed to be circa 1280AD. It is however known that it was owned by the secretary of the Bishop of the Wurzburg monastery and was perhaps created in that same place, as the manuscript depicts images of monks engaged in martial combat.
