Abstract:

The Magnifications series offers children the thrill of examining past civilizations through the eyes of an archaeologist. Gorgeous, full-color panoramas of ancient landmarks are magnified with inset illustrations revealing fascinating details. A valuable research tool, these books are also helpful as travel guides and for simple browsing. Supplements school curriculum in language arts and history. This new title explores the lives of not only the people who lived in castles, but also the people who built them, worked in them, and tried to seize them during medieval times. The castle structure and its surrounding are examined in fascinating detail, and a two-page spread of castles throughout history brings this exciting book to a close.
