KIRKUS 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. (game board, not seen, map, chronology, index) (Nonfiction. 8-12)
