Great Medieval Projects You Can Build Yourself
History comes to life in this interactive guide to the Middle Ages, which explores the fascinating period leading up to the Renaissance including siege warfare, markets and fairs, medieval medicine, and the feudal system through numerous hands-on activities. From monastic life and castle living to the Crusades and the Plague, each section provides a vivid glimpse into the daily life of medieval Europeans and ends with one or more fun activities. With little adult supervision and common household objects, children can experience the Middle Ages firsthand by participating in more than 30 projects such as building a marshmallow cannon, a reliquary, or juggling sticks. Recipes and instructions for creating a medieval feast fit for a king are included, providing kids with an opportunity to step into character and sample traditional fare such as pokerounce, potage, and (non-alcoholic) mead.
