An old engraving depicting two knights in a tilting contest in Medieval times. Jousting on horseback fell from popularity by the beginning of the 16th century. Tilting took the form of riding at full gallop and inserting a lance through small metal rings. The term 'tilting' (and also the term 'jousting') also became used for contests between two men with lances who fought on foot as shown here.
