There is a very good glossary function that children can use if they want to have a word explained to them. The portrait gallery gives more information about the characters in the story. By clicking on the book icon, children can find out more about the Middle Ages. Information is given on Merlin, Stonehenge, language and literacy, knighthoods, Christianity, food and health and myths.
Children can also choose to go on an adventure by selecting either Arthur's England or Knight Errant. Children have to move squares to the correct places to form pictures to progress through the adventure. The pictures get increasing more complex as they progress. It is a shame that other games were not included to make it a more exciting adventure.
The Adventures of King Arthur and his Knights is a story that lots of children will enjoy and this CD-ROM is packed with information about the Middle Ages. This would be good to use with eight to 11-year-old children, especially if they are studying this period in history. --Amanda York
