    One thought on “Medieval Life”

    1. Go ahead and laugh, but I will learn history by hook or by crook This was a terrific book It may have been designed for kids, but like a Walt Disney film, it is equally appealing to adults Fantastic photographs and illustrations of clothing, tools, religious icons and other relics really bring the Middle Ages to life There is even a World War I and II book in the same series Hey, this works for me It gives me all of the basic information I need, and whets my appetite to learn about the time and [...]

    2. This book gives a fantastic introduction to life in the medieval era I m definitely helped by illustrations, and this book is full of them, making it easier to envision the tools and life in this era It is a secular book, so has a non Christian slant to it Overall, just facts are stated, but there are a few pictures and captions I would edit before handing this book to a child.

    3. I picked this book up because I really wanted to read The Time Traveler s Guide to Medieval England A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century by Ian Mortimer but I had to turn it back in to the library because it was on hold for somebody else While not so patiently waiting my turn, I decided to read Medieval Life And as always, DK Eyewitness Books lived up to its reputation There were plenty of beautiful photos and interesting facts in this book You really can t go wrong with a DK Eyewit [...]

    4. I ve always loved the eyewitness books, I have read a ton of them I recommend these to anyone who likes to learn interesting facts that aren t always mentioned in the text books They have great pictures to go with said facts as well.

    5. Medieval LifeAndrew LangleyNonfictionPg 49In Medieval Life it talks about knights, priests, kings, peasants, clothing, etc Peasants are farmers who give almost all of their crops to the king Knights are common day soldiers Some knights are loyal to their king but others betray them Priests are royal religious leaders, but are not as powerful as the king Most kingdoms in Europe believed in Christianity during the medieval era Peasants wore very different clothing from royalty and their high level [...]

    6. The version of this book that I rented had a revised edition of 2011 This book explained in detail all aspects of the medieval time period and everything that occurred within this time period This including the outfits they wore, the way peasants were treated, how churches were built, and a variety of other topics pertaining to the medieval life The book that I chose to pair with it was King Arthur The Sword in the Stone by Hudson Talbott I felt this was a good pairing, because even though King [...]

    7. Eyewitness Medieval Life by Andrew Langley is a non fiction book that breaks down the life of people who lived in medieval times Filled with pages of text and pictures about daily occurrences such as clothing, home life, disease and death, music, feasts and fair days, and weaponry, this book can shed light on what life was like during the times before modern medicine, architecture and weaponry were founded I would pair this book with the novel Redwall by Brian Jacques It is the story of a young [...]

    9. Looking these books over again for a children s literature project, and I have to say that the eye catching photos and layout really work for me I think kids have always found these books appealing as something they can pick up and browse based on what interests them Library copies of this series are always very well loved Very nice.

    10. OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things Highly Recommended

    11. In the Dorling Kindersley style, wonderful photographs of clothing, tools, furniture, weapons, musical instruments and I especially liked the page describing the process of illuminating and gilding a manuscript Grades 6 12

    12. I love how costumes and objects are laid out so that you can tell what it is, because their paintings of fashion is not as good as in the next age.
