MEDIEVAL TIMES by Antony Mason


Email this review


In the If You Were There series, a sanitized look at life in the Middle Ages, with information about castles, knights, cathedrals, feudalism, food, and much more. Each spread--with headlines such as ""Military Might,"" ""An Ordered World,"" and ""Village Life""--contains information on the main topic and several related topics, e.g., discussion of defense includes commentary about building materials and architectural features of the times. Five or six full-color illustrations accompany each discussion; with a varied and attractive layout full of reproductions and other sources of visual information, this is an extremely vivid, useful volume for making the period accessible.
