Follow Henry as he tells you all about life in a castle. Learn how to make a bow and arrow, why did knights have coats of arms?, what life was like in the Great Hall as well as life down in the servants’ quarters and in the kitchens. Find out about suits of armour and jousting and what goes on at a banquet. Both the words and pictures in graphic cartoon style, take readers on a great journey into the past.
