Product description

This work is suitable for ages 8-14. In 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 book shows how myths and legends influenced people's lives, and how these stories were immortalised through oral storytelling, in music and in crafts.

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."
