Meet the Medieval Folk by Liz Miles

You can learn a lot from what archaeologists and historians have uncovered about the past, but what would the people who actually lived at the time be able to tell you? Meet the Medieval Folk does just that! This book will transport you back to medieval times where you will meet all kinds of people from all walks of life. Kitchen maids, merchants, knights and even a leper will answer your questions and give you the inside information of what it may have been like to live at this time, before you are then transported back to your own era. Encounters with the Past is a brilliant series designed to shine a light on historical ideas about subjects such as medicine, science, religion, food, magic and society. Perfect for readers aged 9-11 who want a more personal account of these fascinating times.
