Ever since I traveled in Germany and France as a teenager, I have been fascinated with castles.
This tiny book shows what a kitchen looks like in a castle. There are lots of fireplaces, three-legged pots, even an apple corer was available back then.
For anyone interested in castles, this is a good place to start. You can find information on early castles and forts, how they were built and specifics about the tower.
Other information you will enjoy reading about:
The Castle Dwellers
Attack and Defense
There is also a fascinating section on castles around the world, from Britain and Ireland to Japan. A glossary and index makes this quite useful. They also have so many beautiful pictures of castles, including the Bran Castle that inspired the Dracula legend.
If you are looking for a book for children: Stephen Biesty's Cross-Section castle is pretty amazing as you can see inside a 14th-Century castle.
