    DescriptionIn the Middle Ages, stories were told to entertain, distract, and teach. Myths and stories were woven into tapestries, preached in church sermons, and sung at feasts. Using examples from all over the medieval world, this lovely book shows how myths and legends influenced people's lives, and how these stories were immortalized through oral story-telling, in music, and in crafts. Topics include - medieval storytellers such a troubadours, bards, and minstrels - folk songs and dance - legends and myths from around the world - mythical creatures, such as dragons, unicorns, and giants - medieval theater

    Review quote
    "Crabtree's Medieval World series...feature(s) color illustrations that are photographs of archival medieval book and tapestry illustrations, with some original drawings skillfully done to blend in. There are also some photographs of medieval buildings. All illustrations are captioned, providing supplementary information to the text...(These) books would be appropriate for upper elementary students, particularly where medieval history forms part of the social studies curriculum."
