Medieval Snowball Fights

People have been flinging snowballs at each other longer than anyone knows. The folks in the Middle Ages seemed to enjoy it, if the paintings and illuminations of the era are any indication. Shown here is a detail from the fresco at Castello Buonconsiglio, created circa 1405-1410. The woman in the middle got it good -right in the face! See more artworks featuring snowballs at Retronaut.
