The Big Book of Castles by English Heritage


The Big Book of Castles by English Heritage

Packed with eye-catching illustrations and informative text, this book of castles is an exciting resource for children. It tells the story of life in a medieval castle, who lived in them, why they were built and where, and how they were attacked and defended. Each spread asks a question - how did attackers get inside, how were castles made stronger - and easy-to-follow explanations and picture labelling provide the answers. The vivid pictures are packed with detail and each spread includes useful parents' notes.
