Philip Ardagh has a passion for history. During his numerous children's events over the years, author Philip Ardagh has been asked just about every question about castles and life in medieval times. Here he answers his favourite (printable) ones. Everything from alchemy to the crusades is covered in this 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?" The book has a simple question-and-answer format and, as well as illustrations through, there are fact boxes and quick quizzes to test what you have learned. The reference section includes timelines, a glossary and index.
