Learn about medieval life, from peasants to rich folks, their clothes, food, music, etc. The strength in this book lies in the photos, however, and this book isn't an exhaustive history of medieval times. Rather, it serves as a hook to interest people, and induce them to dig further, while giving them a bit more knowledge.
If you know someone (young or old) who is fascinated by medieval times, then you must introduce them to this book!
IT WAS A GREAT GREAT UNIT BETTER THAN MATH AND ENGLISH
I GOT AN A PLUS ON MY TEST I JUST LOVE HISTORY.I DK BOOKS
This book has the visuals and the captions. But... and this is probably due to space constraints... the book focused on medieval life in England and France, to the near-exclusion of any information about the rest of Europe. Taking 1,000 years of history across a continent and crimping it to discuss only a small geographic area was unsatisfying.
Also, feudalism, customs, habits, and technology *did* change across ten centuries, but this book present the Middle Ages as static and monolithic. What was true at a feast in England in 1275 was probably not true of a feast in Spain in 780 or in Germany in 1066. Things change and fashions change, albeit slowly in this time period.
The book did not do a good job capturing how insular people were in the Middle Ages.
Still the visuals are excellent. Round this out with "A Medieval Castle (Inside Story)" by Fiona MacDonald or "Castle" by David Macaulay.
