One have to remember that they are written for 10-15 year old-ish.
the author have said that it is difficult not to write something wrong, because the first constants used to be considered the truth, but by the time the rest of the book had been written, those truths had been disproved.
Also a good theme in the books is that you shouldn't always believe what a historian have written, because the winner writes the history.
Plot your path to the past with the frightful fold-out map and take a tour of the city's sights.
Picnic with pirates at St Stephen's Green, creep around the cruel cathedrals, then head to Dublin Castle where traitors were tortured and cut-throat Irish chieftains fought to the death.'
