Get a boy growing up in a castle in the Middle Ages, all you want to be is a champion to the king, but can you make it as a medieval knight? It's dangerous! Top Tips from experts: - If you'd prefer a quiet life, you can pay the king a tax called 'scutage' (shield money) to avoid becoming a knight. - Don't be old-fashioned! Remember, styles of armour change over the years. - Take part in tournaments! They're good practice for battle. - Be careful if you're chosen to carry a banner in battle - it will make you an easy target for enemies.
