Thundering hooves, shining armor, and magnificent fortresses . . . the medieval age still fascinates young readers. Heraldry, knights, castles, battles, hawking and hunting, sieges, and holy wars -- The Medieval World by Philip Steele takes readers back through the centuries to medieval times. Fans of the chivalrous age will learn how a young page trained for knighthood, what it was like to ride into battle, how a castle was equipped for a siege, and much, much more.
