5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy Castles 30 Oct 2001
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
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
The Garrison
Daily Life
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mini Travel Companion 17 May 2003
By Leah Marie Brown, Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stuck this book in my pocket as I toured castles in Wales, Scotland, and England. It was a great help to me in learning more about the architecture of castles, as well as what life was like during the age of the fortresses.
Great for children and adults alike.
