How They Lived in a Mediaeval Castle by Carol Adams


How They Lived in a Mediaeval Castle by Carol Adams

From the How They Lived series - a series that contains easy-to-read books in which historical settings are vividly described and drawn for young readers. In Lidworth Castle, several hundred years ago, lived Joan, the baron's twelve-year-old niece who was learning the duties of a lady, and young Thomas, the scullion who cleaned the pots, carried water, lit the fires and was harried by the cook. In the vivid approachable style of this commended series, Carol Adams shows what life was like for them and for the rest of the great household - from knights and ladies to craftsmen, soldiers and servants.
