A Medieval Castle by Mark Bergin


A Medieval Castle by Mark Bergin

A Medieval Castle examines the development of forts and strongholds from the beginning of the Middle Ages, looking at the motives behind the building of castles and the variety of different people needed to make castle life run smoothly. We take a close look at what problems the castle might face in conflicts, such as siege warfare and bombardment, as well as the kinds of personnel who would be involved. Superb cutaway illustrations and pinpoint enlargements accompany the text. Informative captions, maps, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal educational text.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
