Intricate and meticulous illustrations bring history to life in this wide-ranging castle tour that covers both the majestic splendour of the great halls and the hardships of living in a feudal society - from the building of a castle to shopping in a medieval marketplace. A magnificent 8-page gatefold opens up to a cutaway view of the castle -- both inside and out -- and lets viewers get an up-close view of all the rooms and people going about their everyday tasks. Includes an illustrated glossary and index.
