Reviews

Projects include making a trebuchet, marshmallow cannon, some period recipes, and a thatched roof. The material is well written and interesting ... The directions for the projects are easy to follow ... a useful text. School Library JournalMuch more than just an activity guide; we were fascinated by the amount of information presented in its pages... Older children will be able to complete these [projects] with minimal oversight from parents. Homeschooling Today This well written guide to medieval life not only teaches about the Middle Ages, but includes easy to do, interesting, and educational projects that illuminate each subject... There is plenty of good history, easy to read, and sneakily educational. Sacramento Book Review
