Everything from alchemy to the Crusades are covered in this entertaining and informative book, from 'Who built castles?','Where did everyone sleep?' and 'What's a lady's favour?' to the more obscure 'Did they have baths?' and 'Did they have toilet paper?'. There are black and white illustrations throughout as well as fascinating fact boxes and quick quizzes to test what you have learned. The reference section includes timelines, and a glossary and index. If the answer doesn't lie somewhere between these covers, then it probably isn't a castle question worth asking.
