In the Middle Ages two armies encountering each other didn’t always lead to them actually fighting a battle. In many cases a demonstration of strength was sufficient so that the armies didn't have to engage or a peaceful diplomatic solution was found. But more often than not armies faced each other on a battlefield with clear intent. Yet, although the cause for a conflict was clear and it was certain that battle would take place, it did not just naturally begin. The immediate reason to start fighting had to be actively offered by one of the parties. This often involved… let's say rather vulgar means. In this video we will explore how modern historiography explains the three most common ways to start a fight in the Middle Ages.
