Rats, plague and conquerors . . . couldn't have been much fun!

Advantagespacks in a lot of elements of Middle Age life, child-friendly text

Disadvantagesnone really for the age group it's aimed at

The book is all factual but with a comedic twist which makes it suitable for all ages. as in all of the horrible histories series the book starts off with a brief timeline describing and putting into place major events of this era. the book continues to look in depth ..."
