You Wouldn't Want to Live in the Middle Ages! Paperback
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the The Danger Zone series
This unique collection of some of the deadliest, most heroic and most bizarre historic stories and events from the popular Danger Zone series focuses on the Medieval period.
Five titles are collected here. Learn how to survive in a medieval dungeon, what life was like in a medieval castle, what it was like to be a medieval knight, and much more in this captivating collection of tales from the middle ages.
The Danger Zone is a vast library of over 50 exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history.
The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes (or sandals or army boots or cloth sacks) of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived - from pyramid builders to viking explorers, from medieval knights to the crew of the Titanic.
This approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the story and characters, aiding their understanding of some of the most important periods in history.
Humourous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in.
